Mansfield Branch Extension?

Composite maps from 1918 and 1920 showing an extension of the Mansfield branch to a point near Rex. I can't confirm if it was officially surveyed.

There seems to be a bit of difference in the material the mapmakers were working with at the point on the map near Nelson, but things matched up quite nicely further north, not shown.

I've read the same thing. There was a book in the Wenatchee Valley College library on the Mansfield branch (concerning economic development in Mansfield), and I remember it had some history of the branch in it. That may be where I read about a possible extention.
