  • The D.S. Garbett Collection was a love of life for "Dixie". He spent most of his life working on the railroad and taking photo's of his work was a hobby. There is over 1,000 photo's in his collection. 95% of the negative stock is 4X5, and there is about 400, 8X10 prints. All of "Dixie's" work was done in B&W, but there are a small number in color. The WSRHS maintains the collection in the safest condition possible and hopes to devote a book to the works of "Dixie" Garbett some day soon. The Society also maintains a collection of 150 photo's donated to the society by Howard Wolfe, on the building and surveying of the North Coast Railroad that later became the Union Pacific line (from 1901 to 1918) and a book is pending on that too. Dixie lived through a golden time in railroading and we are thankful that he was able to save it on film for future generations.
    "D.S. ("Dixie") Garbett You Will Be Missed!"
