Farewell to Steam ...

RETIREMENT OF THE LAST STEAM LOCOMOTIVES IN WESTERN WASHINGTON


| September/October 1962


Peshastin, Washington

On March 30, 1962, my wife and I went to the dedication Ceremony marking the change-over of Rayonier Grays Harbor logging operations from steam to Diesel locomotives.

The Company has eight steam locomotives. Two were in service.

No. 90, 2-8-2 Baldwin Mallet, built in 1926. Wt. 185,000 lbs. Tractive effort 35,700 lbs. 48' drivers, 20' x 28' Cyl. 180psi.



No. 38, 2-6-6-2 Baldwin Mallet, Built 1934. Wt. 293,000 lbs. Tractive effort 59,600 lbs. 51' drivers, 20'x 31'x 28'cyl. 225psi.

No. 90 came in first with her train of logs and they held her funeral services. She was then uncoupled and switched to a siding.
