Looking back in time

We were talking the other day at the club when Jim Bowden asked if I had photos of the Northern Pacific roundhouse at Parkwater yard in Spokane. Yes I do but the SP&S FA diesels got in the way on the turntable. When I got to Spokane in 1967 the roundhouse held the NP 0-4-0 Minnetonka and the NP 4-4-0 #684. Burlington Northern gave them away in 1978 to Duluth. MN and North Dakota. They didn't stay in Spokane as we didn't get into the Fairgrounds until 1979 with the UP 4-6-2 #3206.
