I love this Milwaukee Road stuff. Thanks. I also enjoyed the aerial view of Riverland and Vernita. In the early 60s my family drove from Yakima to Vernita and crossed the Columbia River on the Vernita ferry. I remember well coming down the hill and then crossing the Milwaukee (US Government RR) right before the ferry. The Riverland yard had to have been there, but I am sure it was comparatively little used in the 60s since Hanford was also served by rail through Richland.
Thanks for the kind words. Love hearing about your experiences there.Dan
