Description AFE 749-09 Superior Coal & Improvement Company Track Connection

This collection's documents focus on building a connection to the main line from the Superior Mine near Issaquah, Washington. The track was authorized, but the Northern Pacific Railway Company struggled to collect leasing fees from the Superior Coal & Improvement Company. Other difficulties were experienced with the steep grade of the land and the need for seven bridges. In the past, the owners of the Superior Mine had hauled the mine's output to Issaquah for shipment.
