PORTLAND SPRINGWATER TRAIL DEDICATION


June 27, 28, 2003

The city of Portland dedicated a three mile addition to the Springwater Trail on June 28. The Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation participated by sending Portland's own SP 4449 in AFT colors and SP&S 700 to run alongside the trail for the day. On June 27, three double headers were run, and on June 28 the engines ran singly, pulling $5 trips. A great day.
