UMTANUM: GENERAL FILE

Forty-year-old signal maintainer Glenn B. Creed had his speeder struck by a falling one ton boulder on October 26, 1936. He was knocked out of the speeder and into unconsciousness in the middle of the rails for something on the order of two hours. When he regained consciousness he set the signals to the Stop position so no trains would strike the boulder and then managed to get to the nearest section house. He suffered a sprained neck and minor bruises.
In January, 1920, a notes states that there was a D-26 type station built at Umtanum in 1886.
