View of downstream from Storrie Power House and Western Pacific Railroad track at Plumas County. Date is unknown. Donor/Source of Loan: Rob Hanford (loan). Audio Tape #12B-220. Downstream From Storrie Power House and Western Pacific Railroad Track. In the left foreground is the switchback connecting Storrie to the Western Pacific Railroad. Running parallel to it is the telephone line, which had been broken on this day and which Glenn M. Way had been sent out to repair. GMW had hiked from the road bed out to a point above the river to take this photograph. The engine that moved the equipment on this switchback was a boadgauge Shay steam engine.
