Back to Shortlines

As you can see from the 1966 Official guide entry above, the LP&N had three small divisions. The smallest and most obscure at the time of these photos was the 3.5 mile Southern Division which served an International Paper Company mill in Gardiner Oregon, and connected with the Southern Pacific's Coos Bay Branch. It shut down with the closing of the mill in 1999. Historical outline / roster from Western Shortline Rosters.

Here's the LP&N 'terminal" at Garfield, such as it was in June, 1974, looking north.

Another brief visit in 1987 found Alco S-2 at the north end of the house, all fired-up and ready to work.
