Remarks & Notes 
Caboose hop at Smith Lake. With the Skookum Locomotive still experiencing intermittent technical issues, the folks from the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad elected to have all 3 of their operable steam locomotives accompany us northbound on our Trains Magazine Charter. Polson Logging Co. #2 would pull the mixed train carrying the phototgraphers, Columbia River Belt Line Railway #7 "Skookum" would haul the log train, and McCloud River Railroad #25 would come along as a protection locomotive, ready to grab the log train and step in for Skookum if she developed any problems. You've heard of railroads running "diesel protection" for a steam charter, but this is honestly the first time I'd ever seen "steam protection"....and it was a most welcome sight. In this scene, we see MCR Prairie #25, making her way north with a caboose hop across the causeway at Smith Lake and throwing a decent reflection as she does. This is also the first time I'd see this unique-looking caboose lettered for the Willamette & Pacific, which apparently did come from the WPRR and has been resident at the OCSR for about 10 years. Unfortunately, I've been unable to find much history on it.
