Box cars litter siding
1983 photo showing NP, CB&Q, GN and BN box cars filling up the siding at Douglas on an early morning. Business seems to look good according to this photo. Almost two years to the day, the train would make its final run and 9 years after that, the depot would be burned down. A large crib grain warehouse would be torn down and lumber sold not long after the depot was torched. Thus completely eliminating any sign of railroading in Douglas, WA.
