SVRY 3-Truck Heisler #3 - Sumpter Valley Rwy
Title:  SVRY 3-Truck Heisler #3 - Sumpter Valley Rwy
Description:  This 1915 Heisler wood burning 3' narrow gauge, geared locomotive weighs in at 42 tons and was principally used for hauling timber on the hastily built logging lines that radiated from the Sumpter Valley mainline. Operated out of Austin, Oregon until the mid 1920’s, #3 was later transferred to a company holding in Idaho, where she operated for several years before being set aside as a back-up boiler for a large sawmill. She was returned to Oregon and restored to service by the Sumpter Valley Railroad Restoration Inc. in 1976. Number 3 is currently one of the only regularly operated wood burning locomotives in North America. Unknown photographer

Steam pump on water car
Title:  Steam pump on water car
Description:  The water car behind the Heisler has a steam powered pump on it. this was not just for show, it was very important for the weekend! The #3 holds enough water to make a run from McEwen to Sumpter and back. With all the extra runbys, the #3 needed an extra source of water. The newly restored Westside Lumber coffin tank was the perfect solution.
