Merrill Oregon Train Collection
Driving south from Klamath Falls, the last town in Oregon along OR-39 is Merrill. As we passed through, we saw off to our right a bunch of railroad equipment. We've seen this before but this time we decided to go see what was actually out there, if we could get to it.( A Rather Sad Collection, ActuallyCollapse )
There are more photos on my Flickr feed; click through the photos above to see them.
From a placard attached to a locomotive and former passenger car on display in Klamath Falls near our hotel on the Oregon Pacific & Eastern trail (former railroad line that led from K-Falls into the logging country, now a public trail), this equipment appears to be part of a projected museum; however, it's obvious that there would be a ton of work before this collection of rusting parts could be much of an attraction for anyone except dedicated enthusiasts like Lisa and me.
