What the heck is it? Well, it is a machine to help lay railroad tracks, of course. Thanks to the efforts of our tireless volunteers and Dick Samuels, owner of the Oregon Pacific Railroad, who brought his amazing track machine to help tamp in the ballast and ties for the tracks, the rail extension in front of the Oregon Rail Heritage Center is complete. The final step will be resurfacing and then our magnificent engines will be able to come out to the front of the ORHC for all to see.
