Last Steam On Idaho Division

Courtesy of the Othello Community Museum.

The Idaho Division, the non-electrified segment between Othello and Avery, ID was the first to be assigned diesel locomotives for freight service in the 1940s. Its capacity was increased as diesels were able to make better time over the division, since they did not have to stop for water and coal periodically.
