Historical Context

The Portland Vancouver & Yakima Railway Company was incorporated in Washington to succeed the Vancouver Klickitat & Yakima Railway.

The original VC&Y line was constructed in five segments:

  • Brush Prairie to Salmon Creek - 2.50 miles
  • Salmon Creek to Daly's Road - 0.30 miles
  • Daly's Road to Yacolt - 14.10 miles
  • Connection at Vancouver - 0.40 miles
  • Vancouver Junction to Station 247 - 2.60 miles

The line eventually expanded to about 27 miles and became a Northern Pacific subsidiary.
