1963: Rayonier converted #120's tender into a water/fire car. The tank was shortened and narrowed for this purpose. When Rayonier later abandoned their rail operations, the tender was scrapped.
1981: Pacific Fast Mail of Edmonds, WA imported 150 HO scale brass models of #120 as operated by Rayonier.
Built in 1936, the last of three 51" driver 2-6-6-2 Logging Mallets, #120 went to work for Weyerhaeuser at their Vail operation. Later, #120 worked for the Chehalis Western Railroad before going to Weyerhaeuser's Longview operation in 1949. In 1954, Rayonier Incorporated purchased #120 for use on their Grays Harbor line. #120 remained in service at Rayonier until 1961 when the firebox crown sheet was damaged because of low water in the boiler. After this, #120 spent the next several years on a siding at Railroad Camp, minus its tender which was converted to a water car. In 1969 #120 was taken to nearby Aberdeen, WA and scrapped.
