This blog features historical information on the railroad lines of the Big Bend/Columbia Plateau region of Washington state.
Thanks for sharing these great photographs.
Great Photos, but the last one tells the story. You can see the rest of the train on the mainline past the east switch. More than likely the local cut off the cars for Reardan Grain Growers and pulled them into the siding. The loading crew wasted no time in starting to load the cars. Meanwhile the power for the train exited the west end of the siding and came back up the mainline stopping next to the cars to hand off waybills to the elevator office. Shortly the power will back down to the rest of the train and head west dropping more hoppers at various elevators enroute.
