I originally posted information about Antique Powerland on my website in a PLACES page on November 23, 2007 and last updated it on December 18, 2009. I am posting the railroad-related information here, with pictures and information from the 2010 Great Oregon Steam-Up. All of my information about Antique Powerland can be found at PlacesPages.
The National Railway Historical Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1935. It consists of over 170 chapters in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. It is the nation's largest railroad historical society, with over 17,000 members. The Pacific Northwest Chapter was established in 1955. The chapter maintains rolling stock in various locations, including passenger cars used on steam excursions, and maintains a lending library at Union Station in Portland, Oregon.
At Antique Powerland the chapter maintains Portland Terminal Alco S2 Diesel Locomotive #36, 1945 Southern Pacific Flanger #328 and 1925 Jordan Spreader #4057. The next three posts will take a look at each of them.
