Description:
TUNNEL No. 2 AND BRIDGE No. 19 BELOW LEWISTON-GRANGEVILLE LINE. Date: Circa 1912 Source Type: Postcard Publisher, Printer, Photographer: Lillian M. Bell Postmark: None Collection: Steven R. Shook Remark: Two Camas Prairie Railroad trestles located in Lapwai Canyon, Lewis County, Idaho, are visible in this postcard image. This section is referred to as the second subdivision of the Camas Prairie Railroad line. The trestles are located between Nucrag, Idaho, and Reubens, Idaho. This photograph was taken facing northeast. Immediately beyond Tunnel No.2, but not visible, would be Tunnel No. 3 as the railbed descends into Lapwai Canyon. If one were to walk uphill on the left side of the track seen here, then they would come across the railbed at the top of the canyon rim. The track laid through this canyon is considered one of the major engineering feats of North American railroads. Seven tunnels are located in the canyon, including horseshoe shaped tunnels (Tunnel Nos. 1 and 5) that turn back on themselves so that trains could continue their climb or descent within the tunnel itself.
