Remarks & Notes 
The POTB's Ex. SP Tillamook Branch was once a scenic passage for freights heading from the plains of Hillsboro to the scenic coastline along Tillamook Bay. This changed in December of 2007, when flood waters from a major storm damaged large sections of the line in the Salmonberry River Canyon. Though the Port called it quits on the line after ODOT refused to pay for damages, the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, who was already running a short coastal section of the line, leased 40 miles of the POTB's line from Tillamook to Enright. For the past six or so years, OCSR volunteers have worked on clearing out most of the line from Garibaldi north, and presently, are a couple miles away from reaching Enright. Thanks to their hard work, I was able to shoot the McCloud 25 hauling RailsNW's annual Oregon Coast Crawler as it crossed the Nehalem River for a photo runby. Up till early 2013, this part of the line was still inaccessible via rail.
