Built c. 1915 by the Pacific Car and Foundry for the Polson Logging Co. These sidedump cars were used to build and maintain the logging railroad in the Grays Harbor area of Washington state. Last rebuilt by Rayonier c. 1960, four of these little cars remain. This is one of two owned by the Northwest Railway Museum. The other two are located at Camp 6 in Tacoma, Wa.

Years of exposure to the Pacific Northwest weather has taken its toll.

Disassembly is about halfway done.

Disassembly is done. The bare frame is now visible.

After wire-wheeling all the metal components, they were primered. Reassembly can now begin.
