This oil burning Prairie type (2-6-2) locomotive was built in 1921 for the Hetch Hetchy Railroad as #5. The Hetch Hetchy was a sixty-eight mile railroad constructed by the City of San Francisco to support construction and expansion of the O'Shaughnessy Dam across Hetch Hetchy Valley in the northwest corner of Yosemite National Park in California. It operated from 1917 to 1949, primarily carrying construction crews and materials, but it also carried passengers, freight and mail

The locomotive was bought by the Weyerhaeuser Timber Co., in 1937 and renumbered #100. It worked at Vail, WA, until 1948 when it was moved to operate on the Nonpareil run out of Sutherlin, OR.

#100 weighs 127,500 lbs, 96,500 lbs on its 48” drivers. With
18” x 24” cylinders and operating at a boiler pressure of 180 psi, it delivered 24,800 lbs tractive effort.

In 1961, the locomotive moved to Springfield, OR, apparently to await scrapping.

In 1962, #100 was donated to the City of Sutherlin, OR. It is on display in Central Park coupled to an unmarked caboose.

The locomotive was in reasonable when I visited, although the “Head Start” signs stapled to the fence detracted from the view.
