Sumpter Valley Railway
Company/Work Equipment


The Sumpter Valley Railroad built caboose #5 in the Baker City shops in 1926 using parts salvaged from an old Utah & Northern caboose. The original company conveyed the car to the Eastern Oregon Museum in Haines, Oregon, when the railroad closed, and the Sumpter Valley Railroad Reconstruction obtained the car back about 1980. The restoration group also has former Sumpter Valley caboose #3, which is visually almost identical to the #5.
