1967 Douglas View

I never realized there was so much trackage there at the Douglas Elevator. It's hard to tell now with all the sagebrush grown up. Still makes me sad every time I cross the old Mansfield grade that old Gov Dixie thought it would be better to haul wheat out by truck vs rail. You don't suppose the trucker lobbyist padded anyone's pocket do you?!

The branch was nearly saved. A proposed port district was defeated by local voters by like 3 votes. It almost was saved!
