THEY'RE BACK!  AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 1st, 2020
It's been twenty years since I printed my "Running Extra" 28-page booklets
I am printing a one-time limited, numbered, autographed edition of 100 copies.
After they are gone...they are gone, not to be available printed or online.

The "Great Northern's Kettle Falls, Washington Branch" booklet covers the
"Kettle Line" from the old SF&N line north to Kettle Falls and features color photographs of the
last and probably only Great Northern passenger train across the border to Republic in 1969.
