Getting Ready for the MRHA
The Milwaukee Road Historical Association begins its annual convention in Moscow tomorrow, and on Friday the 200 attendees will be dropping by the depot for a look around. In preparation, Dan Crandall, Director of the Latah County Historical Society, set up an exhibit on the student trains that once shuttled students between northern and southern Idaho. Also, volunteer crews have been working non-stop on the platform, as well as continuing to remove lath and plaster from the upstairs. Kenny and Dave Cada had excellent help from the community service kids last Saturday, while Jim West, Bob Behal, Brian Magelky, Aaron Magelky and Bill Warner worked on the platform. Thanks for all who show up to do this serious labor!
