Waterville Railway Co. Diesel-Electric

Davenport-Bressler Diesel-Electric.  152 HP Diesel.  Built for the Waterville Railway Co. at Seattle in 1946.  Sold to Continental Grain Co. in Longview, WA in 1951 and then scrapped in 1956.  This engine only saw service for about two years on the WRY Line when the June 1948 rains closed the line forever.  Pictured here in April 1947 parked inside the engine house at Waterville Wa.  Doug Nighswonger provided photo.
