Thinking back to our day aboard the Mount Hood Railroad brings so many treasured memories to mind. The sights and sounds of our day together on the rails will stay in our hearts and minds forever.
We were seated in the ‘Katherine’ car, vintage 1911.
There were wonderful things to see during our lunch layover – railroad and logging memorabilia, gift shops, a museum and a historical home.
This was just one caboose among several on display near the station.
We’re anxious to return for other excursions aboard the train. Plans are in the works for special trips with our grandkids. We are making reservations for the trip on Thomas the Train later this summer and, hopefully, we will go on the Polar Express just before Christmas.
This old luggage and freight cart by the vintage depot caught my eye. I would love to have one filled with wonderful flowers and interesting things in my garden!
Even the iron fences and gates identified the fun we were having!
Soon I’ll share more photos of our trip and a glimpse of the wonderful time we had together riding the rails one sunny Saturday in Oregon.
