Here’s chance to take a look at three of Oregon’s railroad treasures. The City of Portland owns three historic and world famous locomotives. Southern Pacific 4449 was built by Lima in 1941 and is probably the most famous steam locomotive in the world, having pulled the Freedom Train during the 1976 Bicentennial following its career pulling SP Daylight passenger trains. Its stable mate Spokane Portland & Seattle 700, built by Baldwin in 1938, is also a 4-8-4.

Here's an exciting and interesting excursion behind steam! The 90-ton Baldwin 2-8-2 locomotive is ex Cowlitz, Chehalis & Cascade #15, which was originally used in the NW logging industry and was restored in 1989, after sitting in a park for 30 years. Travel 9 miles south through scenic farmlands in the Chehalis Valley and wind along the Chehalis River to a siding and trestle at Ruth and return. A box lunch is included.

Portland Saturday Market is celebrating its 41st year in the historic Old Town/Chinatown neighborhood. This weekly market features 252 booths showcasing a variety of arts & crafts by local Pacific Northwest artisans. Established in 1976, this market has a thriving membership of over 300 artisans. After you’ve had lunch (at the market, self-pay) we travel to Canby to a Dahlia Farm. Swan Island Dahlias, in business for over 88 years, is the largest and leading dahlia grower in the United States. A must see for the dahlia lover, or if you just love flowers.
