Oregon Pacific Railroad No. 801

I am attending a chef's conference in Canby, Oregon ...

The Oregon Pacific Railroad No. 801 rests on the southern leg of the Canby Wye. The 801 hauls freight on the OPR Molalla Branch between Canby and Molalla. The locomotive was built in August 1951 for the Great Northern Railroad as its No. 99. It's equipped with a V-8 EMD 8-567-B diesel engine and is rated at 800 horsepower.
