Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad
The Oregon Coast Scenic RR in the brain child of OCSR President Scott Wickert. It has been his vision of a steam railroad and a logging/antique railroad equipment museum that has brought this group together. All of this was to simply keep these pieces of history available for the public to learn from and to appreciate. It was with tremendous help from his family, friends, and the community members that OCSR was built.
In 2002 Scott Wickert entered an agreement with the Port of Tillamook Bay RR (POTB) to bring his steam locomotive, CLC #2, to Tillamook to begin steam train operations in 2003. For the first two years OCSR was operated as a part of the POTB. During this time the paperwork was underway to incorporate OCSR as a non-profit museum. In 2004 the IRS granted OCSR's application for non-profit status.
In 2005 OCSR began moving away from the POTB and operating as an independant entity. By 2006 OCSR was large enough to take over the majority of POTB's passenger operations and begining in 2007 OCSR was on its own and continues to grow.
