Built by the Great Northern Railway in 1909, the 61 mile Mansfield line branched off the mainline at the Columbia River and snaked its way up across Douglas County, WA to its terminus in Mansfield. In 1970, Burlington Northern took over operations of the line. In 1985 it was abandoned, thus closing the book on railroading on the Waterville Plateau. This blog is dedicated to preserving the history of the Mansfield Branch Line as well as the Waterville Railway Co. And some HO scale stuff.

Moses Coulee in the 1950's
Looking south down Moses Coulee with Palisades in the background. This 1950's snapshot of the coulee was taken by Gus Christ from the railroad tracks. Now in the collection of the Wilson Creek Museum.
