Default Circa 1881 John Dolbeer Steam Donkey Engine

Just thought I'd share a picture of the above donkey engine that I took while visiting Disney's California Adventure park recently on a bus tour. According to a nearby sign it was used in the Redwoods near Eureka, Calif.

If you ever go to Eurka CA. visit Fort Humbolt and view some donkeys in their natural setting + two gypsy drum locomotive's. Once a month or so they steam some up. Jerry

There is a good logging museum in Tacoma, Washington. It is at Pt Defiance Park and is called Camp 6 museum. There is much early steam stuff as well as a railroad. One of the largest if not the largest steam skidder ever used is there and is complete. It is well worth the side trip to see if you are in the area. Carl
