While making its way through ice covered rock cuts, this Great Northern Alco RS1 locomotive #184 works in cold weather to pull its load through Douglas Creek Canyon. The build-up of ice and snow on the rocks made for tight tolerances between the walls and the freight cars.    Photo by Gus Christ, a former GN/BN employee from Ephrata.  Collection of the Wilson Creek Museum.  Most likely a 1950's photo since this locomotive was scrapped in 1960.
