From Weiser to New Meadows

All aboard, train lovers!  On Thursday, May 19, at 7:00 p.m. at the Weiser train depot, Eriks Garsvo will be presenting on the Pacific and Idaho Northern Railway.  This event is being hosted by the Weiser Architectural Preservation Committee for Idaho’s Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month which is celebrating 50 years of the National Historic Preservation Act.
Eriks Garsvo, a railroad historian who has been volunteering at the Nampa depot for five years, is employed by the City of Boise Parks & Rec department hosting historic tours of the Boise train depot.  On May 19, he will talk about the P&IN Railway which ran from Weiser to the town of New Meadows, taking 12 years and over 2,000 men to construct.  Eriks will cover the purpose of building the P&IN railroad, its construction, and the years of operation leading to its demise.  Learn fun historic facts and stories about how this railroad helped connect the towns of Midvale and Council with the rest of the world.  
Mr. Garsvo will also talk about his restoration of a 1942 Union Pacific caboose at the Canyon County Historical Society and how he and a crew of volunteers plan to preserve a rare CA-3 Caboose which was the first class of cabooses to be built with a steel body.
