POTB 6164 Lost Train

For several days I searched the old POTB line between Banks and Buxton, OR for this vintage EMD. I finally got a tip that it was in Timber. I drove down the windy forest roads to the tiny community, and sure enough it was there, and had been sitting for many years unused. Since July 2012, this locomotive has long since been scrapped.

If anyone's wondering the location this engine was once at, the town is called Timber, OR. It's a tiny community out in the coast range and can be found on google or yahoo maps.

The smoke in the beginning was only someone using the fireplace in a nearby house, not the engine being started.

This has since been scrapped?? LMAO I bet sure as shit it came back as
about 300 shit box Hondas. They should have scrapped that piece of shit
Ford sitting there instead. No offence if it's yours.

I'd like to find that and get someone like The Florida Railway Museum to
preserve it! You know, most Sds 9-15 where either scraped or left to rust
like that one, and it would be even rarer to find one in both to POTB
livery and in such fine condition!

Man dav3fk is right, they should be in yard being fixed up and hauling
cargo till they cannot even move! And these locomotives are quite
expensive. That locomotive will rust in peace. A moment of silence
please.... thank you.

Abandoned locos is actually pretty common. In our neck of the woods an old
SP GP9 got into the hands of a shorthauler that eventually went out of
business. The GP9 got left on a spur far from the main and the city ended
up tearing up the connection to the main and so that GP just sat there and
rusted away. Some heritage folks wanted to haul her away but couldn't
secure the funds so eventually when the building the GP was next to was
torn down, the developer hauled the GP away for scrap.

How in the world did an SD9 High Hood get left out in the middle of the
railroad and end up rusting out?

Автор DieselElevators ( назад)
GVT (Genesee Valley Transportation) has a railroad in north-western New
York called the Falls Road Railroad (former NYC branchline) that they run
two locomotives on. They run a train almost each day. (it's a shortline)
They have an Alco RS-32 and an Alco RS-11 High hood. I love Alcos. As for
this SD9, it's a shame that it's gone. High hoods are awesome.

Автор Whatzizname ( назад)
i believe they have been moved now, but i remember they were somewhere near

shame it was scrapped

That's why High hood locomotives are my favorite, and they always will be.

Автор Whatzizname ( назад)
i know of a few locos that aren't used down here in Aus, i believe that
there is a couple of NSW class 43s about 20 mins from where i am

Автор Kabuki Kitsune ( назад)
I know the smoke is from the fireplace, but you have to admit it's almost
poetic in a way. As though a ghost of the locomotive is saying I still have
some life left.

Автор Keith Bunner ( назад)
This Is Former BN SD9 #6164 and should be restored to Operate with BN SD9
#6234 as a team. Just don't see these High Hoods Anymore.

Should have sneaked up on it, when it wasn't listening, dumped gasoline all

while it burns!

Today I have a toy or a car. Years later I wish I could go back in time and

It's not the railroads, it's the greedy corp fuckers that just don't give a

them rich, they don't want it.

Автор Boss302fan ( назад)
No worries. I've felt the same way myself. I've purchased dozens of
locomotives over the years for rebuilding. The truth of the matter is
however that sometimes you end up scrapping one just for the parts to keep
other units running. Take care.

Автор StarWarsTrains ( назад)
Yeah, another good point! (Man, I feel stupid! LOL) Really it's not the end
of the world if one historic unit ends up getting scrapped, because out of
all the SD9's that are preserved, really it's no big deal! (Yet, I still
think that a perfectly decent locomotive just sitting there, still could've
been placed back in service, or even rebuilt into a slug or whatever!)

Автор Boss302fan ( назад)
The "all it would've really needed" you discussed might come out to be tens
of thousands of dollars. At some point it is just not worth putting the
money into these old units.

Автор StarWarsTrains ( назад)
Yeah, good point! But since the locomotive sat idling for several years,
all it would've really needed is new engine components, brake pads, and
several other numerous parts! But it unfortunately was recently scrapped,
and I was giving my honest opinion that it looked fine the way it was!

Автор Boss302fan ( назад)
Whether or not locomotive is in good shape has nothing to do with paint. I
can paint a locomotive for a few thousand dollars. Good shape is determined
by the condition of the mechanical and elictrical components. I've run some
great locomotives with horrible paint and cursed locomotives with great
paint that couldn't pull their own weight. I understnad what you are
saying, but the end result is...if the unit is sound mechanically it's
worth something to a railroad. Otherwise it is scrap.

Автор StarWarsTrains ( назад)
There isn't much rust, or very faded paint; nor is there graffiti or any

Автор Boss302fan ( назад)
How can you tell it is in good shape?

Автор JTelli786 ( назад)
i really want to know how did this engine get there i see old abandoned
engines all the time where i live but they are all at the rail yard being
