there I did your home work ....

my best advice is to call the Historical society , and get true Hard facts ...But it would appear to the rail road maps the train tracks went next to the lake , and not over the lake .. :taco:

there is an old railroad trestle in Lake Cushman at about 190ft.

Nope.. The only train in a lake, is lake stevens , but its un 60 feet of mud... If you go to the historic center next to the lkstvns Library you can see the Army Corps of Engineers scan of the train

[quote=onasphere]Clear Lake here in Mount Vernon has an old steam train engine that went off a trestle and is sitting on the bottom covered with Bluegill and Bass. Anyone heard of this?[/quote]

This post was originally for today. Now that today's gone by, I'm going to try to find exact coordinates for the old locomotive, and then create a new post to schedule a dive there.

Stay tuned...


Digging up old thread and doesn't look like onasphere has been on NWDC in a long time.

Anyone have any info on the train supposedly in Clear Lake?

Count me in for that. I can also bring my boat if it helps.

A dude I took sailing a couple of times told me about it. He lives right by it. I will ask him if he can put us on it. It's a boat dive or a long swim.

How is the vis? The only thing fun about diving in Lake Crescent is the clear water... not much to see.

That sounds like a great idea! I have wanted to try it. But I think I am going to Keystone Sat. Vis. should not be too bad there.
