When these pictures were taken the tracks through town were long gone. Only the old pin-connected pratt through truss crossing the Santiam remains (it's been turned into a walking path).

Here are a few photos of the bridge and the Frank Lumber Co. which sits at the end of track. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge them or click here to start a photo tour.
