Inside the concrete snowshed at Wellington, Washington. This snowshed was constructed by the Great Northern Railway the year after the Wellington avalanche to prevent the disaster from ever happening again. The snowshed covered two tracks. This view is of the "uphill" track. The pillars on the right separate the "uphill" track from the "downhill" track. The two trains that were destroyed by the Wellington avalanche were situated in this area. The passenger train would have been right in the middle of this view on the "uphill" track. The fast mail would have been just to the right on the "downhill" track. Photo by Melissa Logstrom, August 17, 2008. The light that day gives this view of the snowshed an almost cathedral aura.
