Office of Bridge Engineer,

Saint Paul, June 17, 1938

=  

(A)     The dock at Pullman is actually listed as Pullman Jct. on the o= riginal NP document, however after a conversation with Phil Be= ach, I have listed it as Pullman above. As Phil noted, geographically, the dock was located in the town of = Pullman.

(B)     These two places= were blank on the original report above is transcribed from. Other lists show t= he Butte station was= built to Std. Plan S-36-28 in Sept. 1889 and held 1840 tons of coal. These same rec= ords show the Carlton coal station to be a two pocket Standard, singl= e tier Coaler built Jan. 1904 holding 250 tons. The Carlton station lasted until a Red Dev= il coaler replaced it.  

(C)     Records are blan= k concerning Wallace on the original report above is transcribed from. Data conflicts w= ith other lists therefore these two places are intentionally left blank.
