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
