Wooden water tower survivor at Roy, WA
Author: BrianA

I have written a new NP Perspectives Blog update on Roy, WA featuring the wooden NP water tower still next to what remains of the NP Prairie Line. Some good info on the town as well such as how Roy got its name.  Roy is about 19 miles southeast of Tacoma, WA.
 My understanding is this is just one of two remaining wooden water towers left standing on the NP.It was a very enjoyable visit.
Update can be found here:

Thanks for checking it out!

Thanks Brian for the history of the city. Attached is a shot of the BN local arriving (with caboose) almost 29 years ago.
