SP logo

Central Oregon and Pacific RR Rail-fans were treated to a hands-on tour of the Medford facility on Feb-23rd 2002. It was affectionately dubbed "Feel the Rumble". The day started out at the Rogue Valley Model RR Clubhouse located at the Medford Railroad Park, with slide shows and signal lectures of the former Southern Pacific's Siskiyou Line, now used by CORP.

After lunch, some of the fellows went with Rick Perry, a signal maintainer for CORP on a tour to see some of the last working Semaphores and Wig Wags left on the historic Siskiyou Line. Another group went to the Medford yard for some up close foaming.
