A Paul Bunyan Prosperity Special of 171 cars loaded with lumber from the
Red River Lumber Company, posed on the outskirts of Westwood, was put
together in conjunction with the opening of the WP's Inland Gateway on
November 10, 1931. Motive power was provided by WP steam locomotive No.
334, now on display at the Western Railway Museum, and two other steam
locomotives. The Inland Gateway, also known as the Northern California
Extension, refers to the joint effort of WP and the Great Northern to
create a route between Northern California to Southern Oregon.
