This site features daily postings about historical information on the railroad lines of the Big Bend/Columbia Plateau region of Washington state.
Interesting story but sad in a way in that two engines and a crew move 12 beet emptys from the bottom of the hill to kitty and six loads of beats eastbound. Would the money made on the six loads of beets pay the crew and engine power expenses??In a little over 42 years on the GN and BN and working lots of NP locals right after merger I do not think I ever saw a crew do so little on any call.
I'm a little skeptical that so few loads would really pay for themselves, but perhaps it was slow that day.Dan
