Oregon - World Forestry Center
Portland, OR - Located on the World Forestry Center campus, “Peggy” is a beautiful 42-ton Lima Shay-geared locomotive who has hauled an estimated billion feet of logs in her lifetime.

Built in 1909 by Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, Ohio, she was shipped around Cape Horn to Seattle and a few years later purchased by the Stimson Lumber Company. Peggy spent her life working first in forests of Washington and then Oregon. She survived the Tillamook Burn and was retired from logging in 1950.

Peggy was donated to the City of Portland. In 1969-1971, members of the Pacific Northwest Chapter, National Railway Historical Society (PNWC) rebuilt the cab and wood sills in preparation for her move to the World Forestry Center.

In 2003 the Lilley Family Foundation generously donated funds to refurbish Peggy, build a shelter for her, and move her to her current prominent location. Once again Peggy found herself in front of television and newspaper photographers as she was gently lifted by a large crane and placed on her new tracks.

The locomotive is on static display adjacent to the parking lot for the Oregon Zoo, which has a nice park train.
