GARIBALDI, Ore. — Skip Lichter's locomotive made it. Yes, from a lonely Wisconsin valley, over the Great Plains, and through the Rocky Mountains, Lichter's 2-8-2, Saginaw Timber (or Polson Lumber) No. 2 is at its new home in Oregon.

The trip took 13 days, start-to-finish. But officials with the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad have said they're excited to see the locomotive, and Lichter, join their Oregon family. More steam tests remain, but the logging Mikado may see revenue service as early as summer 2018.
