After passing through the tunnel again, the train slows to a stop a Moulton Falls Park, where it is apparently often greeted by "goblins."
The train stops here for about 20 minutes, to give the passengers an opportunity to take the short walk into Moulton Falls Park to Yacolt Falls to appreciate the view.
A sign here tells a brief history of the railroad, reading as follows:
Chelatchie Prairie RailRoad BYCX
The line now used by the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad was first under construction in 1888. It was built to access the timber and other natural resources in the area. The railway has changes hands several times since its completion and was in use until 1993 when it was heavily damaged in a flood. The Battle Ground, Yacolt Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Association has been improving the rail back into working condition since 1999. Moulton Falls has for some time been an area of interest and recreation and is part of the Bells Mountain trail system.
There is a passing siding at the Moulton Falls station, and some of the equipment the volunteers use to maintain the track is stored here when not in use.
BYCX #34 is a fairly large Fairmont Speeder.
This Ballast Cart may be ancient, but it gets the job done.
Tie Crane #6162 was acquired from BNSF.
