The Medford Railroad Park
The Medford Railroad park combines 11/2" scale live steam train rides, an operating HO scale model railroad layout, displays of full size railroad equipment used in the area, a garden railway (G scale) layout and a working exhibit of Morse telegraphy. Admission to the park is free, however, donations are welcome to help finance further development at the Park. It is open to the public on the second and forth Sundays from April through October between the hours of 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM.
The Society maintains numerous pieces of rolling stock and exhibits which are open during public run days. Special arrangements may be made for access to the Park at other times.
|The Society displays seven pieces of rolling stock at the Railroad Park. Several have been restored and are open to the public.|
|The Medco 4 is a three truck, 70 ton Willamette geared locomotive similar to a Shay. It was built for the Owen-Oregon Lumber Company (construction no. 18) and delivered in February 1925. It is currently being rebuilt, for eventual operation, by Society members at the Railroad Park.|
|An SP speeded shed, a collection of assorted signals, blacksmith tools and a food stand also await visitors to the Society's section of the Railroad Park.|
|Five railroad-oriented groups have a presence at the Park and all are active on public run days. Each is also open to new memberships.|
The Southern Oregon Live Steamers hosts birthday and other parties, complete with one or more trains, for a modest donation. The Society currently has no formal program for hosting parties and other gatherings at the Railroad Park.
