  1. When the Great Northern Railway opened its big tunnel through Stevens Pass in 1929, it electrified the whole line from Wenatchee to Skykomish. The Appleyard in south Wenatchee became the maintenance center for the electrics, and Joe Gaynor became head of it.
  2. “What’s the future of some 3,000 sodium vapor street lights in Chelan County?” I asked Andrew Grassell of the conservation department of Chelan County PUD that question.
  3. “This engine pulled the longest train ever to come off the W-O Line.”
  4. My taste for opera came a long time ago.
  5. The summer of 1927 is the subject of a new book by Bill Bryson with the title “One Summer.”
