The goal of the project is to produce a documentary video

recording the voice and image of those Valley people still alive who can tell us

what life was like along the tracks of the Milwaukee Road's Everett

Branch. Over 45 individual interviews are on the VHS videotape archived at

the museum in North Bend and are available to researchers.

Volunteers are still needed for this project and donations are always

welcome. Write to the Milwaukee RR Project at P.O. Box 2144, North

Bend, WA, 98045, or visit our Web site at
