My name is Ryan, I live in Portland, Oregon and travel around the northwest fairly frequently, camera in tow. I took some of these with my first digital camera, hence the grainyness and small image size. Most memory cards were terrible in 2000.

One of the last six surviving Alco PA diesel-electric locomotives in the world. This one was rescued from the storage yard the Puebla Museum in Mexico, along with one other PA. Both were in fairly bad shape but not so bad they couldn't be restored. Doyle McCormack owns the above engine and is in the process of restoring it. He's giving a cosmetic restoration (no engine) to the other PA, which is going to the Smithsonian, and is to receive the famous Southern Pacific 'warbonnet' color scheme.

Several other historic engines also live at the Brooklyn Roundhouse.

Sometimes called the Calapooia Street bridge, it was built in 1892 and demolished in 1926 when the Ellsworth Street Bridge was completed about a quarter-mile downriver. The bridge was reportedly the longest single-span steel bridge in the western US at the time of its completion. Sometime in the 1940s or 50s power line scaffolding was added to the top of the towers. There are five sets of towers in all.
