If you like Funnelfan's Palouse Rails, a Book for You
Author: railstiesballast

Thank you Funnelfan for these recent posts and for all the wonderful photos and narratives you share.
I hope you don't mind me jumping in here, I would like to see more people interested.
Here is a soft cover book that I recently read and highly recommend.
I have had a deep appreciation for the Palouse region since moving to WA about a decade ago and Thomas Hillebrant is an excellent starting point for learning about "Palouse Rails"
What is unique is that the author follows most of the lines covered through to their current status (of course quite a few are gone.)
If you are at all interested I suppose a web search would find a copy....

Yes, that was a excellent book, and very affordable too. I highly recommend it.
