On the down grade at Douglas Creek Falls
Loaded box cars are pushing against 2 geeps on a 2.2% grade in the late afternoon hours in March of '83. These locos have just crossed over bridge #9 with the rest still crossing it. The north portal end of the 750' tunnel is just ahead. John P. Henderson took this picture standing on top. In 2000 part of the tunnel collapsed about where John is standing in this picture creating a huge sink hole. Douglas County maintenance crews filled it with a couple thousand yards of soil.
