Now that Elton Peak is complete, I'm officially 5/6 of the way done with this route. Five cities down, one left up to go. 83% completion and the rest should be smooth sailing.

The Garrard Pass located in the Either Mountains of Northland and Eastland, was the first transcontinental railroad. The line was constructed between April 1856 and June 1858. The railroad would compell many settlers in the mountains to form towns. Six different villages would spring up along the line and grow into the size of a town. Heitmann, Paxson, Garrard, Willis, Elton Peak and Boozerdale owe their existence to the Eastmont Northern Railroad.

Eastmont Northern stationed helpers in Heitmann, Northland and Boozerdale, Eastland. Refueling depots were also in both towns including Garrard. During the 1860s, Eastmont Northern began building an extensive snowshed to protect the line, trains, equipment and employees from the elemetns. However, during the 20th century, snowsheds were gradually removed as new technology and equipment enhanced the railroads ability to combat inclement weather. The first trains to operate over the line happened in October 1858 when the railroad reached Russell, Eastland.

The Garrard Pass was home to many local and branch line trains, including street running.  Every city had at least one smll yard, roundhouse, coal tower, sand tower and water tower. Willis had the largest yard with 12 tracks in all and a roundhouse with eight stalls. Five different factories served the Eastmont Northern Railroad in that town alone. Over 20 industries were served by the railroad. Willis also became a spot for helpers needing to help freight trains make the final push over the summit. This was due to the increase in weight and length of trains during the turn of the century.

Passenger service over the route was also a major presence. Four different passenger trains ran over the line between St. James and Jefferson City along with Waterman. Local commute trains also operated on the pass between Heitmann and Boozerdale. Today the Jefferson City Overland is the lone option for rail travel over the Garrard Pass.

With the Eastmont Northern Railroad dieselizing its operations in the 1950, coaltowers and water towers were no longer a necessity although helper service in Heitmann, Willis and Boozerdale was still needed. Roundhouses were operated until the early 1970s when they were deemed obsolete by the Eastmont Northern Railroad. Freight traffic was virtually liefeless by the mid 1970s and the railyards in all six towns were abandoned shortly thereafter in the late 1970s. All yard tracks, spurs, street running sections and branch lines were removed in the 1980s. The new land was open for cities to use for whatever they wanted.

Today the Garrard Pass is still a vital cog and transcontinental mainline for Eastmont Northern. Operations have been simplified to just two helper sidings and a pair of diesel locomotive refueling depots in Heitmann and Boozerdale. Anywhere between 30 and 40 trains travel over the line on a daily basis. The Garrard Pass serves as the longest transcontinental route between Waterman, Northland and St. James, Elkhorn.
