The above video shows highlights of the excursion train's route, both from aboard the train and trackside. They are presented in the order that they would occur if they were made during a single trip, though it is a composite of two trips from the same day. I rode the first trip, and chased the train during the second.
Here is locomotive #10 at the Yacolt Depot. The train backs out of Yacolt, making the entire trip to Lucia in reverse. As it backs out of town, the train passes a number of local farms.
This very large Holstein dairy cow lives near the tracks. The farmer standing next to the cow is of average height, making this cow about 6 feet tall.
A number of llamas live near the tracks as well.
The train crosses Railroad Avenue, which basically marks the end of town. From here, the train backs through Moulton Falls Park without stopping. The pictures below were taken in the area of Moulton Falls, just before entering the tunnel.
Tunnel #1 was completed in 1903. It is built on a curve through solid rock and is not lined, though there is a timber portal on the west end. The tunnel is difficult to photograph from the train, and isn't very accessible otherwise, so I don't have photos of it, but it is in the video.
