This is the Cascade Rail Foundation archive web site.  Cascade Rail Foundation is dedicated to sustaining the legacy of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (Milwaukee Road) in Washington. 

With the railroad long gone from the state, it is important that people have ways to discover and learn more about the Milwaukee Road to ensure the unique history of the railroad here does not disappear. 

This archive web site is one of the ways in which we work to make the history of the Milwaukee Road in Washington available for people to discover, to help them understand the social, economic, and technological importance of the railroad in the state.

Our site is hosted by Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive (PNRA).  Cascade Rail Foundation is a member organization of PNRA.
