Eagle River Consolidation #50
What better way for a railroad to appeal to the general public, than to offer free passenger excursions over the whole route! AND it’s pulled by a steam locomotive! When you stop over at the Eagle River Railway’s Beaver Cove Depot on weekends during the summer, you’ll be treated to a 3.5 hour round trip over the entire 19 mile system, powered by a 1909 Baldwin 2-8-0! Steep 2 and 3% grades, a dozen bridges, a tunnel, rock cuts, a switchback, the massive Keane Lake, and at the end of the line, a free half hour tour of the Camp B Logging Facilities make this a journey of a lifetime! There are no bad seats when you’re riding in one of the vintage 1903 Wood Passenger Cars at speeds up to 30mph! Don’t miss your chance to experience the Eagle River Railway!
Locomotive #50 was built by Burnham, Williams & Co. in November of 1909, and holds the distinction of being the last locomotive produced before the firm was renamed to the Baldwin Locomotive Works. Originally built for the Southern Railway, #50 saw service on many of the Southern’s smaller branch lines hauling mixed freights. She was retired in 1950 and stored serviceable incase of a locomotive shortage. After spending 38 years on display at a local park, she was purchased by the Eagle River Railway in 1998 and towed to the west coast logging railroad’s headquarters in Beaver Cove, where she was completely restored and brought back into operating condition. #50 is occasionally found pulling shorter freights when power is needed, but her primary purpose is hauling the Eagle River’s weekend public relations excursions. The railroad’s President can frequently be found at the throttle of #50.
