Curtis Lumber Co. Heisler 2

Elbe Railfan Days, June 30th 2001, saw the debut of two newly restored steam locomotives: Curtis Lumber Co. Heisler #2 and Mason County Logging 2-6-2T #7.

Heisler #2 was also built in 1910. She was built as c/n 1198 for the Curtis Lumber Co. of Mill City, Oregon. She spent her entire operating career at Mill City for a succession of owners which included Hammond Lumber Co #2., Mill City Mfg #2, Vancouver Plywood & Veneer Co. #2 and Willis Shingle Co. 2. In the l960's she was purchased by Jack Rogers for display in his logging museum at Ashford, WA - just down the road from MRSRR. She operated briefly in the early 1980's on the short track of the Rogers Age of Steam Logging Musueum. Jack Anderson purchased the Rogers collection in the mid 1990's and resold her to herpresent owner Scott Wickert of Chehalis, WA in l999. Scott, who works at MRSRR spent over a year on #2's restoration which included a new crown sheet.
