Intro

The second stop on our tour of the PC&E is Rimrock.

 

Tucked on the rim of a rocky mountain ledge, this station serves as the contact point with the Tumwater Mining Company. The PC&E picks up loaded ore cars containing bureaucratum and moves them to the docks along the Columbia for export.

At Rimrock helper locomotives are added to tonnage freight drags for the long, hard pull to the summit at Tumwater Tunnel.
