The Pacific Railroad
Preservation Association


What do the little numbers under the 700 mean?

The Pacific Railroad Preservation Association (PRPA) is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to restoring, maintaining, and operating historic railway equipment of the Pacific Northwest. The association is the official caretaker of the SP&S 700.

We encourage you to join PRPA to get our newsletter, Whistle Up the Columbia, and be among the first to know about future excursions of the SP&S 700.

The PRPA is a member organization of the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation
