2006 Wheeler Section House

Prefab building built by the Northern Pacific in the 1960s to replace the original one. This is right next to the prefab depot. Note the "WCRC" on the mailbox. This was for the previous shortline name for this line, the Washington Central.

Bruce Watertank

I did get a photo of it in 2006, during a speeder tour of the Columbia Basin Railway. Sorry about the dirty windshield.

Bruce and Wheeler had identical water tanks. Unfortunately, the one at Bruce is gone. See the destruction here.

The State Of Lincoln?

From the "Wilson Creek World."

January 15, 1915

This cartoon was discovered via a blog entry over at the Washington State Library Blog. See the post here.

I can only imagine what the nice folks over in George, WA would say if something like this were to happen today.
