SLc Survivor List
(2-2-1891) The #23 was sent back to Lima Machine Works before being shipped out West. They rebuilt the trucks with steel bolsters (they originally were wood!)
Georgia-Pacific Corporation, Powers, OR has been listed as an owner however there was no apparent G-P ownership, it was merely a few small parts left in the stream, the main components had been sold (1945) to Marion before G.P. existed.
