1947 Rare Photo Near Bacon

Found this 1947 photo of a Northern Pacific train 1 mile north of Bacon on the Adrian cut-off between Coulee City and Adrian.

Photos of trains on this stretch are mighty rare. This photo was taken because of the bridge, over the main canal, as part of the Columbia Basin Project.

This location still exists, except for the Northern Pacific, the fine looking steamer, and the tracks. The footings and the canal are still there.
