Calling All GN & BN Fans Who Live In Eastern WA State
Author: CA_Sou_MA_Agent

I may have asked this before, but did anyone ever take any photographs of trains going around this curve (see link) on the western side of Spokane?  It looks like a scenic area -- a nice horseshoe curve with no obstructions or urbanization.  It's now abandoned and was on the "old line" to Wenatchee before everything was re-arranged for Expo 74.

Maybe"funnelfan" Ted Curphy would know the answer to your question.

Since it was torn up after the 74 reroute, there are no photos since then on the alignment. I have gone through Jerry Quinn's photos and haven't seen anything from that location. My guess is it was a hard place to get to, and rail fans in the late 60's weren't headed out there.

I will keep my eye out for any photos of that curve.
