Spokane railroads around 1910

Some of us at dinner last week were talking about where the tracks went in the downtown area of Spokane. Here is a map that shows a turntable about 1 inch below the number 43.  That was the Milwaukee Road facility, Brown building supply was in there for years and now Hamilton Street bridge goes over it. The track that goes into section 37 is the Spokane & Inland Empire line that climbs the South Hill, goes past Valleyford and on to Colfax, Washington and Moscow, Idaho. The Northern Pacific tracks on section 36 is the BNSF main through the Valley.
