Ephrata depot view.

From around 1959.

View of the depot from a postcard I just got. The mainline is now welded rail, the siding is stub-ended before the crossing, and all the industries the boxcars are spotted next to on the right are all gone.

Waterville Railway Depot

No date, but likely 1959 or 1960. The shed that dominates the view on the right is sitting in what is Rainier Street and is long gone.

BN 8028 At Rock Island

Photo courtesy of Brian Ambrose.

Brian says:
"On an overcast day BN's SPD heads east into Rock Island, WA 10-9-82 with SD40-2's 8028/8066/8016/6363. At the time these 8000's series SD40-2 were everywhere. They must have been assigned to Interbay. Though I was probably not happy it was overcast, no doubt it would have been very backlit if the sun had been out. Can't recall the symbol SPD, probably something like Seattle/Portland to Denver."

BN 7857 At Winchester

Photo courtesy of Brian Ambrose.

Brian says:

"Westbound BN train #79 passing Winchester on 10-3-81 with units 7857/6473/7050/6406/6739/6766 (SD40-2/SD45/SD40-2/SD45/SD40-2/SD40-2) Kind of wish one of those SD45's had been leading. Not a very productive Saturday either. Saw two trains but this is the only slide I have to show for the day. Makes me wonder why I didn't chase it to Trinidad."

2013 EWG Storage Car Pickup

March 12, 2013. Starting at Odair where the power was split to pull cars off the wye, then combined with the few loads from Coulee City. The train then went to Cement where a car was set out and the power reassembled. Last shots are at Hartline, where no work was done that day.
