The Columbia Southern Railroad

 

Remains of trestle and crossing of gulch North of Shaniko.

The railroad crossed on a trestle at this point, North of Shaniko.

 

The ties were never pulled up and can be seen in the weeds. There were several parallel tracks where the yard used to be, and a wye for turning locomotives.

Grain Elevator at Kent. Old railroad bed is in the foreground. Seems like I read that it is made from boards stacked flat for the walls.

The station at Wasco. Note mileage to Biggs and Shaniko.

The tracks next to the station are long gone, but you can clearly see the right of way.

 

 

All that remains of the old railroad from Biggs to Shaniko along US97.

 

 

Railroad yard at Shaniko. The station was in front of the sheep barn to the right. Remains of the wye are in the field to the left. The ties were never pulled up and can be seen in the weeds.
