Train Update

The depot is surrounded by lots of snow these days, and when Stan Patterson called today with an update on the W&I's scheduled pickup at Harvard tomorrow, he said they'd been blasting through six-foot drifts at 30 MPH today. "It was like riding in a washing machine," he said, noting that he could see nothing but snow out of the cab as he traveled along toward Palouse. We talked Bear Nisse into braving the deep snow to get the accompanying shot (thanks, Bear!) at Palouse. Bear and LuJane Nisse publish the Latah Eagle. They've certainly been part of the team as we've worked on the Depot Restoration and we can never thank them enough for their support!
