Oregon - Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation
Since 1975, three steam locomotives--the Southern Pacific #4449, the Spokane, Portland & Seattle #700 and the Oregon Railroad & Navigation #197--have been restored and maintained by volunteers in the Brooklyn roundhouse.

The future of the roundhouse is uncertain. Locomotive volunteers and community members have formed the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation to secure a permanent home for the engines and create a facility to preserve Oregon's rail heritage. The proposed rail complex will combine a maintenance shop, the historic roundhouse and turntable, and interpretive displays of historic rail equipment.
