A new book titled Columbia River Gorge Railroads just arrived at the library, and its loaded with photographs. Covering both the Washington and Oregon sides of the Columbia River Gorge, author D.C. Jesse Burkhardt shares the history of the areas rail lines through a compilation of captioned photographs, many of which are from his own collection.

.

Burkhardt was the editor of the White Salmon newspaper, The Enterprise, from 1994 to 2011, so his connection with railroads is very local indeed. But his interest in trains began much earlier.

.

Railroads caught my spirit when I was a kid growing up near an east-west mainline in southern Michigan. There was something magical about standing alongside those tracks feeling the wind in my face and seeing the distant twinkle of an emerald signal light.

.

The library has several books by Burkhardt, so if you enjoy his latest book, consider adding one or more of his other titles to your locomotive reading list.

.

The library has many other train-related titles, so if riding the rails figures high on your list of must-do activities, get on track by absorbing as much locomotive information as you can. Oh, and just so you know, getting a ride on the crazy train is not an option. It derailed a long time ago. Same goes for the gravy train.
