Railfan & Railroad
OCTOBER 2015: While the Jamaican Railways have shut down, private bauxite mining companies use what is left of the network to haul product to port. Michael Burkhart takes us on a tour of a tropical paradise populated with vintage MLWs, while Robert Scott takes us on a trip to central Oregon to visit the Klamath Northern. All this and more in the October issue of Railfan & Railroad!

On The Cover

Railfan & RailroadA loaded Klamath Northern lumber train climbs the stiff grade to climb up and over Oregon Route 58 as it nears the Union Pacific interchange at Gilchrist Jct. on January 23, 2015. At ten miles long, the line might be short, but it features an unsual locomotive hauling heavy trains on steep grades. Join Robert Scott for a tour of this unusual private shortline operation in Central Oregon starting on page 30. PHOTO BY ROB JACOX
