A Great Northern switcher is seen here working the Klamath Falls mill in 1957.

A freshly painted SP caboose brings up the rear of a train passing through Olene in May 1957.

In 1967 Jack rode the second unit in a freight heading eastbound. This shot is looking forward while the train is passing through Dairy.

This shot is looking backwards from the second unit as the train passes through Horton. The train consists of four boxcars bound for the Bly mill and a long string of empty log cars bound for the Weyerhaeuser Woods railroad at Sycan.

Two sets of SP locomotives, fire cars, and cabooses at rest in the Klamath Falls yard in 1973, two years before Weyerhaeuser took over.
