||Burlington Northern "Kendrick Local" or "Pullman Switcher"
||The 1753 was assigned to Spokane its entire career. It is seen leaving Moscow for Troy, ID on the Arrow Branch, BN's ex NP Palouse & Lewiston from Marshall to Arrow Jct, on the Camas Prairie east of Lewiston. 1753 was former NP 315, GP9 built 8/1957 and part of the group 302-316 originally assigned to the Idaho division. It held the unofficial record for the most tonnage dragged up Sunshine hill, between Pullman and Moscow. 1753 eventually wound up on POVA as their 102 and is still there, rebuilt. Train is either the Kendrick local or Pullman switcher heading to the Joel grain elevator. This line went out of service in the mid 1980s and was finally torn up after the P&L was sold to Watco in 1996. Date of image is an educated guess. Image is taken from parking lot of the Moscow Mall.
