Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading
The Pacific Lumber Company Heisler locomotive No. 9 is the only surviving piece of railroad equipment that had worked on the Mt. Tamalpais & Muir Woods Railroad, known as “The Crookedest Railroad in the World.” On March 15, a local group called "Friends of #9 LLC" was the successful bidder to purchase the engine from the Town of Scotia. Purchase effort leader Fred Runner will talk about how the successful bid was prepared and the many tasks now needed to return the locomotive to Marin County for public display. Runner will also show a recently-discovered 1928 newsreel film with sound showing the Mountain Railroad in action. After an intermission, additional Mountain Railroad film and photos from the NWPRRHS Archive will be shared.
