Undated Quincy Map

No date, but likely Burlington Northern era, as the Port Dist track on the top left is long gone.

A Note On Comments

I recently discovered that the comments on my page were moderated, and I wasn't getting notifications for them. Hopefully I have it fixed now.

1948 East Low Canal Crab Creek Siphon

Another example of poorly labelled photos in the collection of the institution listed in the watermark. They say a canal is being constructed near Soap Lake in 1948.
These show the East Low Canal being constructed just south of the bifurcation from the main canal about a mile north of this location near Adco. It shows the Crab Creek Siphon being constructed underneath the Great Northern mainline just east of Adrian. Also shown is how they diverted Crab Creek and put the siphon below the creek. This is still the case today.

1948 Dry Coulee Siphon

Photo shows the Dry Coulee Siphon and related canal being constructed by the Winston Brother and Utah Construction. At this point the canal crosses the Northern Pacific branch about 2 miles north of Adrian and a mile north of Adco. A construction spur was placed here that was noted on NP timetables at the time as Winston-Utah.

These photos are part of the collection with the watermark, but very improperly labelled in their collection.

1937 Grand Coulee Train Wreck

Courtesy of EWU; Hu Blonk papers.

Report said a locomotive actually went over the cliff, but I can't find the report at this time.

Date is supposedly January 1937.
