the Spokane International/Union Pacific has on the Inland Empire.
Subjects will include the oil-fields of Eastern Washington, the McGoldrick Lumber Company and how
the Washington,Idaho & Montana Railway fits into the Spokane International story.

downtown Spokane thru Crowsnest Pass on the Canadian Pacific Railway. 
Included will be unpublished images from the lens of legendary SI chronicler Larry Shawver.

The Spokane International Railway was a small Class 1 railroad built in 1905 by D.C. Corbin as a 140-mile rail line from Spokane, Washington to Eastport, Idaho. The railroad existed independently from 1906 to 1958 when the Union Pacific took over running the line. The S.I. Railway primarily moved interchange traffic from the Canadian border to the Pacific Northwest to complete with James J. Hill's Great Northern/Northern Pacific railroads that dominated the region; today the route is still a profitable operation with commodities shipped to Western markets via the Canadian Pacific Railway.

The book will combine interesting technical and operational information entwined with Larry's reflections, wit and personal involvement with employees and history of the railroad from the 1910s through 2000. Nearly every lineside location and railyard was photographed by Mr. Shawver, and there is a story behind each one.
The Arcadia Press book will be a 128-page soft cover publication with about 200 B&W images, the projected retail price will be around $22.00US with an expected early 2019 release date.
