A T HIGH SCHOOL; OTHER
On Friday, December 16, the fo l

classes were conducted through the

They were under the leadership of
Mr. Drews, shop instructor.
They first visited the foundry and
saw the process o f making castings.
They were told that the iron mould
ing trade is the hardest in the world.
Connected with the foundry is the
pattern room where patterns fo r all
castings are made.
N ext they visited the building in
which the Pullman cars are repaired.
This department has a daily output
o f ten freigh t cars and employs 450

Leaving the repair shop they vis
ited the machine shop. Here much
o f the technical work is done, test
ing valves, lathe work, electrical
work, etc. The motors on some o f
the large steel turning lathes develop
over one thousand horsepower.
The last thing on the list was the
roundhouse. There were about fifty
locomotives on tracks around the
building. These tracks converge in
the center where a turn table was
located. An engine could be moved
from place to place very quickly. The
locomotives are brought to the round
house fo r repairs or cleaning. One
engine interested us particularly. It
is one o f the largest on the coast
and is used in the mountains near
Pendleton. The engine has six drive
wheels on each side and develops
thousands o f horse power. The loco
motive cost $100,000.
A fte r leaving the railroad yards
the expedition split— some returning
to Estacada and some remaining in
Portland. Those who stayed in town
visited the Rankin flyin g field located
just below the railroad yards.
