It is the long term goal of the SO Rail to rebuild and operate as a tourist excursion railroad a segment of what was once the Medford Corporation (Medco) logging railroad, using  locomotives and other equipment originally used in the region.  Our objective in undertaking this project is to create a living railroad museum in its original forested environment.  As part of this larger project, the SO Rail has acquired two of the remaining four Medco locomotives.  These are the Medco No. 4, a Willamette locomotive built in 1925 and the Medco No. 8, a Baldwin S-8 diesel-electric switcher built in 1952.  Over the years the SO Rail has also acquired several other pieces of rolling stock which have also been moved into the Medford Railroad Park along with the Medco #4 locomotive, or stored elsewhere.  The cars on display at the Park include a box car, a flat car, a hopper (ore) car, four cabooses, and a flanger.  Of these eight cars, three will be restored and modified to carry passengers when the tourist railroad is established.
