This video is a compilation of home movies filmed by Milwaukee Road carman Francis (Frank) Lex. He filmed these scenes of derailments being cleaned-up while working on the wrecker crew based at St. Maries, ID from the late 1970s to the end of operations in early 1980.
This digital copy of Frank Lex's films was donated to Cascade Rail Foundation by his son Craig Lex.
