Remarks & Notes 
"No man will ever be fool enough to build a railroad through the Feather River Canyon" - Collis P. Huntington The Feather River Canyon is home to steep cliffs, loose rocks and tough railroading. It is hard to imagine what Arthur W. Keddie was thinking when he surveyed this route in the early 1860s. How could you build a railroad through such inhospitable terrain? Hard work and the American Spirit seemed to push the railroad through the canyon. By November of 1909, the line was complete. For over 100 years, the Feather River Route has served as an important artery for commerce traveling east and west. On a sunny February afternoon, Union Pacific 8148 guides a 148-car MNPRV out of Tunnel 10 between Pulga and Poe, California.
