1940 US Construction Railroad Photo

This image from 1940 looks northward towards Steamboat Rock. You can make out the railroad right-of-way crossing the lake, also seen here. You can make out the old highway to the right of the railroad. The current highway, SR155, is a lot closer to the cliffs on the right, and then cuts through the basalt cliff just to the right of the same lake the railroad crosses. This section of highway is locally called the "Million Dollar Mile" as that is about what is cost for this section of highway to be built before this whole area was flooded to become the Equalizing Reservoir now called Banks Lake.
