The Spokane, Portland & Seattle 700 is a Northern type E1 class 4-8-4 steam locomotive. It is maintained by the The Pacific Railroad Preservation Association.It is one of three steam engines that live at the Brooklyn Roundhouse in Portland, Oregon. The Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation is now looking for a new home for these engines - since the Union Pacific has other plans for the space. I took this video at the oopening of the Spring Water Corridor between OMSI (the oregon Museum of Science and Industry) and Oaks Park in June 2003. I had a big Sony PD 250 camera from PCM down on the ground about 5 feet from the tracks. It was a fun experience as the train roared by! Coyoteco
