Sumpter Valley Railroad

Wouldn't Zip make a wonderful engineer? He looks right at home, doesn't he? Okay, so this isn't Seattle; it's Baker City, OR and we are at the Sumpter Valley Railroad.
Here we are with the "conductor of the day"! All crew positions for the train are volunteer, including the engineers. It takes over 5 years of dedicated work to become qualified as an engineer. They love what they do and it shows.

If you are ever in Oregon, be sure to ride this train! There is just something about riding an old train that is very relaxing and exciting at the same time!
