This Date in Railroad History


November 10, 1931
The Great Northern - Western Pacific "Inside Gateway" route to California was completed today in ceremonies at Beiber, California. The WP had constructed 112 miles north from Keddie, and the GN had built south from Bend, Oregon using lumber company trackage, SP trackage rights from Chemult to Klamath Falls, Oregon and new construction. It had taken 28 months to get ICC approval and 14 months for construction. 64 years later, during the SP-UP merger, BN would acquire the former WP section between Keddie and Beiber, along with trackage rights on UP into Stockton, California.
