What a scene! And to have a couple of the old Woodworth switch stands captured as well. They aren't as grand as the old red and white chevron stands on the mainline but I'll take them anyway. These things may be getting to be a little more rare as the new owners of what remains of the Milwaukee system are removing some of them. I noticed on the old Google maps street view that Tacoma Rail has removed every one of those stands between Tacoma and Fredrickson on the old Chehalis sub. Disappointing but I hear these new switch stands are a lot easier on the back.
