Moses Lake Sugar Beet Harvest

From "Northwest Railfan," October 1995

As I reported to this fine magazine back then:

"WCRC has assembled at least 100 sugar beet hoppers at Moses Lake, WA, in preparation to haul the sugar beet crop. Some cars are lettered for Holly Sugar and the Colorado & Wyoming Railway."

The credit line really butchered my name, calling me "Dan Sawyer!"

Photos of my trip to the beet loading operation have disappeared.
