Weyerhaeuser Timber Company 6

This logging locomotive (Baldwin Locomotive Works, 1928), class 8, was operated by Mud Bay Logging Company as #8, then Weyerhaeuser Timber Company as #6. It has a 2-6-6-2 (“Chesapeake”) wheel arrangement and pulled log and lumber trains throughout its career in Oregon and Washington. Number 6 was retired in 1962 and displayed at Weyerhaeuser’s Klamath Falls headquarters. In 1965, Weyerhaeuser donated the locomotive to the Northwest Railway Museum, where it was restored to operational condition in 1969. Number 6 pulled trains on the museum’s interpretive railway until 1974. It is currently stored at the Kimball Creek Yard in downtown Snoqualmie.
