Klamath & Western Railroad

One of the first days of our visit we stopped at the Klamath & Western Railroad…
  

According to Wikipedia…

Free public train rides are available at Klamath & Western Railroad, a 501(c)3 non-profit public benefit corporation, which is located directly east and adjacent to Train Mountain on South Chiloquin Road. The train ride uses approximately 1.6 miles (2.6 km) of track, and takes about 15 to 20 minutes.[10]
Klamath & Western Railroad existed prior to the founding of Train Mountain under the name of “Over The Hill Live Steamers” which was a result of being referred to as being over the hill from the Medford Live Steamers (Southern Oregon Live Steamers,[11]) since to get there one had to traverse the Oregon Cascade Mountain Range.[12]
Klamath & Western Railroad has several antique railroad items on display, including the antique Train Order Semaphore Signal, originally used at the Southern Pacific Station in Junction City, Oregon.  

  

We took a train ride, had lunch and took a bunch of photos of angels, clowns, fairies and gnomes.
