Gangs out...dignitaries in!

The Tie and Steel Gang wrapped up their work yesterday and the SP&S decided it was time to celebrate. They snagged a few GN passenger cars for a trip to Madras tacking them on the rear of the #1 to be dropped off at Wishram. The mixed train was held until the arrival of the cars so they could be added to the rear. The cars arrived early in the morning and were setout on the small runaround track at the new industrial area.  The dignitaries were driven by motor coach to get some breakfast in downtown Madras. After their hearty breakfast they returned to the site for speeches and back patting. They then had a steak luncheon and returned by motor coach to Pasco. The cars will be picked up tonight by the retuning mixed train and taken to Wishram to make a connection with the #2 and get them back to the GN at Spokane.
