RUNNING EXTRA – GREAT NORTHERN’S KETTLE FALLS, WA BRANCH

 

This 28-page full-color 6” x 9” booklet contains over 35 photographs as a companion
 to the informative text tracing the history of Great Northern’s Kettle Falls Branch.
From its beginnings as Daniel [D.C.] Corbin’s Spokane Falls & Northern in 1889,
these rails north to the resource rich Southern British Columbia have been
vital to the region’s development on both sides of the border. Note on pages 9 & 10,
images of two “Doodlebugs” nos. 2339 and 2313 sitting at the original Marcus depot
before being drowned by the backwaters of Grand Coulee Dam. Not be missed are
the photos of the last [and only] passenger train from July 14, 1969 on the Hillyard to
Republic Special. Images of the excursion train passing the boxcar “station” at Grans Forks, B.C, crossing the Curlew Bridge and exiting the only tunnel on the line are priceless.
