Last Train At Withrow

Guest post by Darrin Nelson.

"Sam Lassiter, a Withrow area native, captured the 'Last Train' as it passed the Main St. grade crossing in Withrow on March 2, 1985. After almost 80 years of railroad activity, Burlington Northern quietly and without much fanfare, collected its remaining box cars and moved out closing a big chapter in the little community's history. 

"Three years later in 1988, Withrow's only store and post office would close as well."
