Railroad workers, Bowdon current and Dill retired, recount the story of the railway built to ship lumber from southern Oregon to the major east-west routes in California. After small companies had failed in the attempt, Southern Pacific opened the line in 1929. Not until after World War II was the traffic forecasted actually achieved, and by the late 1980s, there was barely enough tonnage to warrant a single daily train in each direction. Monochrome photographs abound. No mention is made of the people for whom the line was named. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
