Klamath Northern Railway Company KNOR #415
Nature of Firm
KNOR operates freight service from a connection with UP at Gilchrist Junction, OR to Gilchrist, OR (10.6 miles). Traffic is outbound lumber and woodchips.
The company was incorporated July 2, 1940 to take over the operation of a private logging line built two years earlier and owned by the Gilchrist Timber Company. In 1991, Crown Pacific Corporation purchased Gilchrist Timber Company and the KNOR railroad. Due to lack of traffic, the KNOR ceased operation on July 19, 1991. Crown Pacific applied to Oregon PUC and the ICC to start operations again in 1994. In 2004, International Forest Products (Interfor) acquired the line and sawmill.
