Remarks & Notes 
A local heads through the trees and around the curves of Lake Sammamish as it heads south toward Issaquah, the end of the branch where it occasionally would visit to serve a lumber distribution yard and a Darigold creamery that produced butter. This x-NP branch used to extend from Seattle to North Bend, WA, serving Weyerhaueser Co.'s plywood and lumber operation at Snoqualmie Falls. BN had cut a deal with Milwaukee Road to use trackage rights on their line allowing abandonment of this line east of Issaquah.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
