Motive power was provided by WP steam locomotive No. 334, now on display at the Western Railway Museum, and two other steam locomotives. The "Inland Gateway," also known as the "Northern California Extension," refers to the joint effort of WP and the Great Northern to create a route between Northern California to Southern Oregon.
