    Why can't the engineer be electrocuted?
    Because he's not a conductor!

    Ted,
    Nice image! Any chance of extending it into the Coeur d'Alene area? How about a higher resolution of this one?

    Thank you, Ted! Very interesting.

    Does anyone have images of railroad cars or trains on the abandoned lines in the photo? I've always wanted to see pictures of these old lines in service, but don't know where to look.
    I miss the BN...

    Clive Carter has a recent book out on some of the Spokane lines called "Inland Empire Electric Line : Spokane to Coeur d'Alene and the Palouse."

    Excellent book that covers a bunch of the lines that went south of Spokane and were later picked up by the GN.

    "Spokane Street Railways" by Mutschler, et al, is another good one covering the in town street car lines, plus the WWP interurban to Medical Lake and Cheney.

    Another one covering the building of the Coeur d'Alene Railway & Navigation, Spokane Falls & Northern, and the Spokane International is "Inland Empire--D.C. Corbin and Spokane" by John Fahey.

    Get 2 of these books through Bob's Railroadbookstore.com.

    Very nice Ted, What is the abandoned line that parralells the old GN North out of Spokane? Also one corection, the line through Fairchild AFB is now out of service with a new line replacing it that comes off the old CW line and follows Craig Road North.

    This version may come across better. The other version started off as a .gif, but was converted to .jpg by the website. The line along the GN north of Spokane was the Spokane Falls & Northern Railway prior to being bought by GN as it's Kettle Falls line. A new connection was built from the GN at Dean Jct down and across the Little Spokane River to the SF&N.

    Here are three photos of the Spokane Falls & Northern's old grade in a neighborhood north of Spokane. Here is a link to the location of the photos.

  10. Default Railway forms

    So since you gentlemen seem to know a bit about the local railrodas around Spokane, I have another question for you all.
    I have multiple forms from the Spokane International Railway and Great Northern Railway Co. Dates vary from late 1800's to early 1900's. Four different types of forms. 39 forms in all total. ALl are new and unused. All in a binder with plastic sheet proectors. Incudes two unused western union night message forms. Dated 189-
    Anyone have any idea of what these might be worth? You can email me if you have questions on the specifics. Thanks.
