End of the Line /or Locomotives in the Steam Woods KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.--The end of the line has conic for the steam locomotives which chugged along the nation's largest private railroad system. Weyerhaeuser Company, which has operated more than 20 separate log-hauling railroads in the Pacific Northwest since 1903, last week announced the retirement of its last active- steam engine. The huge Mallet-type locomotive which closed an era of nearly six decades of steam is now heing prepared for permanent exhibit it the company's Klamalh Falls mill headquarters. The pioneer timber product firm is still the largest operate of logging railroads, though it trackage has dwindled in recen years. Trucks are now the pn mary means of log transport o: tree farms across the country And sleek, efficient diesels hav replaced steam pots for lumbe and log hauls on the remainin company rail lines at Longview Chehalis and Enumclaw, Wash Springfield and Klamath Falls Ore. Number 6, the J05-ton engm custom-built by Baldwin in 1928 now joins two olher steamers dis played by the company al Spring field and Longview.'

The four-man crew which made e last run is still working as a am on the diesel trains which ive taken over. Engineer Russell "Rook" Mc- lum, who has been railroading 40 years, the last 22 with eyerhaeuser, remembers the day It was Thursday, April 7, 60, and the sunrise promised bright spring day as the crew nswered an aerly call. ·We knew the last steam run as imminent," Rook recalls, "but e didn't know which day, mo even year that it would hap- jn." Tall, overall-clad Thomas Thorn .. served as brakcman. "We ate n early breakfast and got aboard but 5:15," he says. "It was a utine day, with Number C as gned to a jammer job on the 0 railroad spur." The aging Mallet lived its last ay of glory only because the esel locomotive regularly gned to switching cars for the g-loading jammer machine had roken down. No one knew, when her fire was lied by the ground crew at 5:30 at night, that Number 6 had nded an era. She had outlasted 18 months the final run of ringfield's "Old 100," the com my's only olher recently active earner. 'We miss the roar of the old earn hog," says Fireman Ora Arnelt. "When you get away rom steam, why, you've got some- ling else. It just isn't railroading ny more." Conductor Dale Hoover takes le practical attitude that steam Dwer had been living for many cars on borrowed time. "You an't compare a steam pot with diesel for efficiency or econo ly." lie asserts.
