Train Mountain Railroad

Thanks to "recommended by YouTube" I first learnt of "Train Mountain" which is located in Chiloquin OR.  They made it Train Mountain by laying

down almost 25 miles of 7 1/2" gauge track which is the longest in the world today. This is one huge layout. I found a video which makes the 4hr

ride around the place in 18 minutes. Guess you can call it "Garden Railroad Extraordinary" as this 7 1/2 inch gauge supports people riding on the 

cars. Skykomish WA has one of these 7 1/2"gauge layouts that runs during the summer months. Just about every locomotive in history can be 

seen in action around this place and most if not every one scratch built from the biggest steam to the littlest steam. This is hardcore. I think I might

enjoy an afternoon here. Uke/Mntman not far away.

I'd dress appropriately. Just jumpin around in clips saw 3 rearend collisions (blacked out). Must be head ons, over looked/covered up.

If ya need to sign a release, I'd tell 'em where to shove it.

Steam kills/has killed/will kill again. Signals are for show or red means GO!!

Otherwise, have fun.....keep yer eyes open!

Whole lotta details not available in the vids, but Wikipedia rose to the challenge. Yep! I wanted ta know more before I head out towards Klamath Falls on I-5, then head over to 97 south. Tiny town of Chiloquin nearby for refreshments and eats. A day trip coming up
