Title The Next-to-the Last Car on the Old Sanpete Valley Train
Description that the flight of steps was too strenuous for temple workers to climb, caused them to be taken out and beautiful green lawn planted around the hill. (Loren D. Squire, born 1898) THE NEXT-TO-THE LAST CAR ON THE OLD SANPETE VALLEY TRAIN John K. Olsen Ephraim, Utah Senior Division Honorable Mention #1 Incident The most outstanding thing I remember about the old Sanpete Valley Train that passed our farm twice each day (except it sometimes missed Sundays) was the car with the baggage compartment in the front half and the smoker in the back half. (Never did I see that car run backwards.) The top of the car was flat like a freight car, only it was minus the walking- board in the middle. This flat top, without any decoration what-so-ever, reminded me of a rooster that had lost all of its tail feathers. (John K. Olsen, born 1889) Sanpete Valley Railroad, 1879-1929 -51-
