The Camas Prairie railroad: Idaho’s Panhandle railroad is a history of the spectacular Camas Prairie Railroad in eastern Washington and northern Idaho. Formed out of the intense competition between the Northern Pacific Railway and the Union Pacific Rail- road in 1909, the Camas Prairie operated joint trackage between Riparia, Washington and Lewiston, Idaho, with branches extending to Headquarters, Stites, and Grangeville, Idaho.
Carefully researched from railroad papers and interviews with employees, this book tells the full story of the Camas Prairie for the first time from founding through the present day. This history presents the origins of the unique cooperation between the parent companies UP and NP, details the many routes surveyed to the railroad’s namesake Camas Prairie and to the logging camp at Headquarters, Idaho, including maps of the lines considered in Lapwai Canyon, site of the famous Halfmoon bridge. The book is complete with information on operations and equipment, maps of the full railroad and key points, and hundreds of photos, many in color, from noted photographers Henry R. Griffiths, Jr., Philip R. Hastings, Philip C. Johnson, Ed Austin, Blair Kooistra, Rob Leach- man, and many others!
