White Christmas

It was a cold winter day in Eastern Washington one Sunday morning, now several years ago. Loading the old suburban up with camera gear, I headed out to one of my favorite photo subjects, just to see a bit of snow fall on The Milwaukee Road. The snow was heavy and thick at Rosalia, but thinned as I worked my way west toward Rock Lake. At Pine City, the clouds broke and the weak winter sun glinted for just a few moments off the old Pine City elevators.

It was a peaceful and quiet morning along the lines of America's Resourceful Railroad, I hope your holiday season finds moments of the same.

Absolutly beautiful! I spent a good portion of my childhood in Pine City, as my grandparents lived in the house to the right of the elevators in the picture and farmed the surrounding land. The Milwaukee was already gone by then- I missed the last train by a couple years. Thank you for this rare glimpse into the electrification gap... look forward to many more!
