I have a Witter rppc of the "activity at the depot" photo from the newspaper. He dates it as Sept 19, 1910, the activity is " the Pullman A.C. Demonstration Train" (A.C. is Agricultural College (now WSU). It occurs to me that the train may have gone to many rr towns in eastern Washington, but I haven't searched. I can send you a scan if you wish. Regards

I just did a google search for "pullman agricultural college demonstration train" and some items popped up. They ran demonstration trains starting in 1898, if I am reading it right.
