New Grain Storage at Coulee City

From the Coulee City "News-Standard"

Nov. 12, 1981

Construction of this new structure obliterated any old signs of where the Coulee City depot had once stood. Even after the depot had moved, I remember seeing the track inspector arrive in town on his speeder and muscle it off the tracks where the old depot had been, as there was still a little place to park the speeder.

The improvements at Coulee City were to also help take some of the burden off the railroad line to Mansfield, as that would not have any rail service within a few years. CWGG built the unit train loader as they were mindful of trucking grain here from some of the places on the Mansfield branch.
