    The train is approaching Eaton Wash; the retaining wall on the other side of the road (Huntington Dr.) is still there, although part of it has been cut away for a driveway. The puzzling element in the photo is the switch stand. There’s no crossover shown in the Younghans map in Interurbans Special 61, and I can’t thing of a reason for an industrial spur here. The only reason I can imagine is that a crossover was installed here after the Eaton Wash bridge washed out in 1943 so service could be resumed over one replacement bridge while the other side was repaired.
