Way back in January 2013 I ran an article with the above title. See it here. In that piece, I mentioned that the photos were taken by Paul Neihart, then druggist at Coulee City, who took the photos right outside the front door of his store. I asked his daughter, Marsha Neihart, if she might still have those photos. Indeed she did and she recently gave me all of the photos to keep. Here are a few more that I did not post before.
Here is a clipping of the article from the "Spokesman-Review." The top two photos are the very ones sent to the paper for use.
Photo shows the tracks below the completed dam, before the last of them were removed after the May 1948 flooding. Note the bridge over the highway next to the Green Hut restaurant, now the site of the visitor's center.
On September 28, 2008, Bob Kelly, of the Great Northern Historical Society gave me and my family a personal tour of the Mansfield Branch of the Great Northern. Here are the photo of our stop at Touhey.
