Skookum's Drivers Return To OCSR Shops

As busy as things were at the OCSR shops on Saturday morning as w readied Heisler #2 and her train for the trip up to Salmonberry, we took time for a "special delivery" that we have been waiting on.

The OCSR shop forces are in the final stages of the rebuild of the famous 2-4-4-2 "Skookum". 2 of the drive wheels needed to axles. We sent those to the Heber shops in Utah for the new axles to be carefully pressed on. Those drivers were delivered on Saturday morning and we were all too happy to stop everything to do the unloading.

By the end of this week these drivers will be under the frame on the engine and that project is one step closer to completion.
