The "Spud Local" Fired Upon!

From "Flimsies Northwest."

January 1999

The "Spud Local" was switching at Quincy, WA on December 4, 1998, when it was fired upon by individuals in a passing car. A special agent was called, who in turn, notified the Quincy police. Later on, the same person or persons again fired upon the local.

Note: The Spud Local is the local BN (and BNSF) switcher that switches out cars on the line between Wenatchee and Ephrata.
