The Pacific Northwest Tour, 2003

Palouse River and Coulee City Railroad


We did this section apon our return to Pullman (afternoon of June 25), as we ran directly back through Palouse, not deviating to Potlach.

This was a short trip, of about 10 miles.

Moscow and Pullman support each other with Pullman acting as a dormitory town to Moscow, which has a university.

At one time there were two lines connecting Pullman and Moscow, today there is one.

Arriving in Moscow.

Me on Teds M9 at Moscow.

Ted Hoheisel with his former Royal Canadian Mounted Police M9. And Jim "Just can't have a bad day on a speeder" Haskins and his M19 at Moscow.

Ted was not too sure about the life of this little wonder. It certainly had appeared not to have travelled too far. Two whole days, and nearly 200 miles - Whoo Hoo!


A good reason not to linger in Moscow was this LPG car. It derailed a day before, and was being repaired. The box car is carrying water, and the tanker has been pumped full, pending repairs. It must have gone well, we didn't hear any more of it.
