THE SUMPTER VALLEY RAILWAY STORY

The past and present come together in the Sumpter Valley Railway. It all began in the late 1800's and was disbanded in 1947. The people of the county loved the "Stump Dodger" as it was called, and in 1971 the Sumpter Valley Railway Restoration was incorporated. Soon, the long ongoing task of bringing it all back together began.

Today's SVRR is powered by one of the original 1915 Heisler gear-driven steam engines. It is the only wood burning, narrow gauge locomotive of this type still operating in the Pacific Northwest. Ride with us through the peaceful Sumpter Valley and enjoy the sound of the steam whistle echoing off the nearby mountains.

Produced by Ed Cushman & Robert B. Clark.

THE RESTORATION OF SVR ENGINE #19

In Oregon's northeastern corner, The Sumpter Valley Railway wound its way through a maze of forests and canyons. Local residents cherished the narrow guage Strump Dodger, but when the forests played out and folks started buying automobiles, no amount of good will could keep the line from dying.

As the end approached, the White Pass & Yukon bought a pair of aging 2-8-2 Mikados from the Sumpter Valley. Numbers 19 & 20 served out their days in Alaska until they were too weary to ever run again.

This is the story of the restoration of #19 as performed by Doyle McCormick and the Daylight Locomotive and Machine Works of Portland, Oregon. The restoration took over four years to complete.

Number 19 locomotive is now back on the tracks carrying excursion passengers through the historic Sumpter Valley.

Now in her eighties, Mary Connor still oversees the operation of the Camp 5 Museum complex and the last of the steam locomotives which is named "Four Spot". This is their story.
