POTB 6164 Lost Train

For several days I searched the old POTB line between Banks and Buxton, OR for this vintage EMD SD9. 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.

If you enjoy my videos, feel free to like, comment, and share! Thanks for watching!

This was a railroad that served hundreds of businesses before it was washed
out in 2007 and would have cost tens of millions to fix. The company did
not have that kind of money and SD9's aren't worth anything, so they just
left everything. POTB planned on fixing it in due time, but fisheries
regulations and the recession killed their efforts, and they filed for
bankruptcy. The real heartbreaker is when the railroad died, so did the
hundreds of businesses it served. You will find loads of abandoned
equipment, trucks, buildings, sawmills, etc.

Do you have any closer images of the locomotive, or inside?

Personally, I would have this locomotive removed from there and shipped to
my property where, I can restore it to new condition. As in factory new. Of
course, this requires various legalities, but I feel quite confident that
such an adventure would be worth the price. So much of our railroad history
is disappearing. I do agree with one poster up in here who spoke about the
circle of life, but sometimes, not every time, but sometimes we need to
intervene and preserve a little of that history. This particular locomotive
looks to be in fine shape. Might even start up right away with new
batteries and some preventive maintenance checks.

Such a sad sight to see this poor little locomotive sitting there. It's
days numbered because, someone doesn't see the value in preserving it. BNSF
ought to sell it, if they now hold the rights to it. Of course, I do not
know that they do, but it seems clear that something ought to be done about
As for those cars, they too could be removed and a real train could be made
on my property. Oh well, we'll see. Thanks for creating this video and
sharing it.🚉

This has since been scrapped?? LMAO I bet sure as shit it came back as

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.

I say bnsf got get this fuckin awesome train and repair it. and use it cuz
these good trains have feelings and ware ever it is tell me and ill rescue
it and call dispatch and tell them you have a train to use on your railroad
you son of a bitch

Автор dav3fk ( назад)
sad - they deserve better.

That's our collective heritage being cut up for scrap.

I just realized that I should probably get over cars, and into trains - if
I could get a small loco, I'd NEVER run out of things to fix. Seems like
the logical gearhead progression.

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.

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.
