Location Of Wenatchee Wharf Track

Map from the GN-NP Archives.

This was the spur that the railroad used to access steam boats that plied the Columbia River up towards the Okanogan country, which were made obsolete by the construction of the branch to Oroville in 1914.

In later years, it was just a spur off the WO main, that went around the Cascadian Fruit Shippers warehouse from the north. Part of the actual spur today is underwater due to slack water from Rock Island Dam.
