A Vision for the Future
Restoring the #90 and her train
Restoration work on the Polson #90 began in late January 2020 with the restoration of the tender. By mid-march of 2020 the tender had been stripped down and work had begun restoring the frame and trucks. Unfortunately, with the onset of COVID-19 Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad was forced to close and so work was unable to progress. OCSR was able to re-open in mid-June, and in July work resumed on the tender. While the original goal had been for the tender restoration to be complete by October 2020, that completion date has now been pushed back to March 2020.
Once the tender is restored work will start on the engine portion of the locomotive.
