On Track for Upcoming Business

Sometimes progress at the depot is as slow as the W&I Railway's F-Unit chugging into Potlatch (pictured above with Don Somers out to greet Joel King in the locomotive). But there are some new happenings. Yesterday Karen Rohn and Julie Kerr met with Jack and Don to review terms of the lease. And phone service was installed. That means the new business --Blackbird at the Depot --is closer to moving in and opening its doors.

The word is also out that the speeder rides in Palouse will be a new addition to the fun this year. No presale tickets for the rides, but speeders will be on hand on July 10 from 11 am to 1:30 pm, with ride tickets being sold at the Palouse RV park. The tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for 12 and under, with a route going between the park and E Street. It's a great event for Palouse and a good option for parents wanting to take the kids on their first ride-the-rails excursion.
