Looking Back – October 12, 1933

On October 12, 1933, twenty-nine freight cars of a Spokane Portland & Seattle train derailed in the rock cut east of Cheney during the night.  There was only one broken jaw, and some cuts and bruises, reported among the fifteen men riding the freight train.  Clearing the wreck and righting the track took sixty-six hours of labor by one hundred men.
