Railway Mail Service To Coulee City To End?

From the "Spokane Chronicle."

May 14, 1940

Mail service from Spokane to Coulee City will continue via Northern Pacific passenger train "indefinitely," Walter C. Hays, chief clerk on the railway mail service, reported today.

The railroad previously made plans to discontinue its passenger service to Coulee City on May 20.

Bids were received for temporary star-route contracts to supplant the rail service and the bids already had been submitted to Washington, D.C., when the Postoffice Department order for "no change pending further investigation" came through today, Hays said.
