Sunday found Jim and daughter Tori working on the platform in the freight room (pictured above), and Mike Bryngelson putting the final coat of finish on the temporary floor in the ticket office. Once again, Jim brought daughters Tori and Delaney along to put some sweat equity into the building, no small sacrifice considering the West family could've been boating on Lake Coeur d'Alene or something like that! Thank you Jim for giving up so many weekends for the non-paying job of "project manager" at the Potlatch depot. It is gratifying to know that Tori, Delaney and Aaron Magelky, members of the younger generation, are also invested in the history of the railroad and company town. And Mike is a new convert to the project, as well. We appreciate all of you volunteers.
