Fourth of July 1960
The 10 Spot a gift to the Town of Forks.
The Fourth of July in 1960 was a special celebration, the Pacific Coast Shay logging train that had been brought in and placed in Tillicum Park a few months earlier was officially dedicated that day.
Then Mayor Earl Kennedy said a few words as A.A. Rhyne, park chairman, and Robert Cunningham, of Rayonier Inc. which donated the locomotive, stood by. Kids were crawling all over the trains as the formalities of the ceremony took place.
Those that were thanked for their volunteer work of setting up the trains were John Nagel, Carol Windle, Lawrence Brager and Bill Wentworth who all had donated labor, building steps and hooking up the whistle.
The old engine still looks good today, thanks to volunteers that have made certain the donation that was made to the town of Forks then will be around for many more years to come.
