Toledo West
This is the furtherest trestle that is still standing on this line. (9/1/06)
The number 1 on display in Toledo. Although lettered for the Corvallis & Yaquina Bay, the engine saw
service in Lincoln County as Manary Logging Company's #1. Then it went to C.D. Johnson Lumber
Company as their #1, and finally to Georgia Pacific as their #1 and was put on display in 1960. (1993)
The old freight depot in Corvallis. (7/95)
Mill City
This water tower stands on the west end of Mill City where the tracks crossed Broadway. (2/24/08)
This is the trestle that was used to cross the north fork of the Santiam River. Since its
abandonment, the trestle has been used as a walking path by the residents of Mill City.
(Summer 93)
Same trestle as above, only seen 15 years later. (2/24/08)
The Mill City depot stands just as it did back in the days of the railroad. Only
now, it serves as a museum instead. The main tracks used to run where the
street is now. (2/24/08)
This trestle stands on  the far east end of Mill City, where the tracks were past the mill and
were on their way to Gates. (2/24/08)

trestles that I know of to be still standing at the time I visited them. (7/95)
