Photos from: Slide along Willow Creek shuts down railroad line

--State DOT photo

State Department of Transportation officials check out the slide area on the bank of Willow Creek which led to a shutdown of the rail line serving much of Whitman County. The bank slid out Jan. 23 along the line near Pampa Pond. The vertical face right next to the rail base made the site too precarious to support train traffic. Approximately 2,500 freight cars are transported on the railroad each year to supply farm chemicals and ship out grain loads.
