The PRPA thanks Ted Curphey for sharing these photos with us.

Oct 10 Pasco to Sandpoint.

This was a ferry move day; our consist was the 4449 auxiliary tender, MRL 392 diesel (not the 395 as some discussion threads stated), our tool and crew car (the Kenny Prager), and the Bella Vista dome car. The MRL diesel joined the consist at Spokane, replacing the BNSF diesel that came with us from Portland.
