Last Bit of Action in Withrow

This grainy photo dated March 2, 1985 shows the last box cars to occupy the Withrow Siding.  Moments later these box cars would leave this ghost town never to return.  Operations on the MB Line were ceased by Burlington Northern.  Picture was taken off of SR172 looking east towards the Central Washington Grain Growers' facilities.  Anita Sprauer photo.
