Oregon Lumber Company

Two shots of one of the Heislers owned and used by the Oregon Lumber Company.

Three truck Shay #7, purchased from the New Mexico Lumber Company in 1936. The #7 stands out as the last narrow gauge Shay built. The #7 remained in Baker City until sold to the Black Hills Central Railroad in South Dakota in 1961, and the machine still exists today at the LaPorte County Historical Steam Society, Heston, Indiana.
