Sumpter Locomotive

OPB | Jan. 31, 2008 12:30 p.m.

Hop aboard one of Oregon’s only regularly operating full-sized steam locomotives for a historic tour through the beautiful Sumpter Valley. It’s a slow, smoky, noisy ride, taking passengers back in time to experience the sights, sounds and smells of train travel in the 1890s. The meticulously restored engines hearken to a time when Sumpter was the second largest city in Oregon, boasting a large timber and gold trade.

First Broadcast: 2005
