The nickname “Railroad on Stilts,” refers to a section of the defunct Camas Prairie Railroad of northern Idaho. In one five-mile section, there are more than a dozen wooden trestles. Each one assumes a different height and length, as determined by steep canyon walls.
The Union Pacific and Northern Pacific owned and operated the line. Constructed in 1908, the railway on stilts, operated for 92 years. It transported agriculture and timber from Central Idaho to the Pacific Northwest.
