Astoria Railroad Preservation Association

Here at the Astoria Railroad Preservation Association (ARPA), we are hard at work restoring our 1925 Baldwin engine #21 to its original glory. The ARPA, located in Astoria, Oregon, was formed in the early fall of 1990, and is comprised of dedicated individuals interested in promoting public appreciation of the historical importance of he railroads to our area. To further this goal, we have set as the initial objective the restoration of a steam locomotive to operate in the Astoria area. We incorporated in the March of 1991, and have since received 501c(3) status. Our membership is open to anyone with a sincere interest in our purpose and goals. Find us online at
