From the 1909 Spokane Directory
He was born in Ohio in June 1861 and died in Spokane in 1936. In 1905 he was listed as a terminal agent at Hillyard in Spokane. In 1910 he was a conductor and in 1920 he was a yardmaster. His home was in Hillyard. Data from Ancestry.com. Trying to find a connection with the MB Line. Maybe it is just a coincidence.

These large timber girders came off a pier from downtown Seattle.
The pilings used for the abutment ramp walls are from bridge trestles off the MB Line. A local farmer had several and I was able to acquire some for my bridge. Very solid.
"Lamoine Draw" sign modeled after a 1950's Great Northern Railway Standard Plan for bridge number and stream names.
