Train Mountain 2000

Train Mountain, eleven and a half miles of main line in the wilds of Oregon. Seems like a bit of a dream for us land poor Brits with our "big" 1/2 mile tracks. After being a ModelTec and Live steam subscriber for a number of years and having read a number of articles on this vast enterprise. The new millennium seemed like a good time to save up some pennies and make a trip out to see things for myself.

So this I a small sequence of shots from my first trip, generally rambles are also organized for live steamers to try out their equipment on a number of tracks either before or after the TM week. In this case if I remember I did the ramble south after the meet. This took in Medford, Sacramento live steamers, LA live steamers, San Francisco live steamers, and the Bittercreek and Western tracks.
