Everett and Monte Cristo Railway -- December 29, 2021

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 13-February-1898

I have always liked the name of the Everett and Monte Cristo Railway, which was built in 1892-3 to haul ore from mines in the Cascades to Everett, Washington. The line also carried logs and finished lumber. It did a good business carrying tourists and outdoor people to see the beautiful mountains. It stopped running in 1933 and was scrapped in 1936.
