Port Townsend Construction, Port Townsend


This derelict little 0-4-2T was built by Porter in 1889 for the Port Townsend Construction and Street Railway Company. It was apparently used in the the construction of parts of Fort Warden as it was buried in fill on the Fort grounds in 1911. In 1941 an aircraft hanger was built over it! In the early 1970\'s the aircraft hanger was demolished and the Porter rediscovered. It is not on public display, but is not difficult to find if you ask around.
