Common Carrier Railroads.


Columbia & Puget Sound Railroad.
3' Gauge.
1880 - 1897(NG)


Seattle & Walla Walla Railroad and Navigation.
3' Gauge. Seattle's first railroad, built in reaction to Northern Pacific's 1873 decision to locate its western terminus in Tacoma rather than in Seattle. The Seattle & Walla Walla began at Steele's Landing on the Duwamish River, and eventually extended for 21 miles to the coal mines of Newcastle, in South King County.
Seattle to Newcastle, King County. 1873 - 1880
