Class R-1 Mallet Steam Engine Built at Hillyard 1929

I was surprised by this postcard in the mail yesterday, actually a whole group of pictures of the Hillyard area. The Great Northern owned by James J. Hill built the largest railroad yard west of Minneapolis here in Spokane and the people called it Hills Yard, later Hillyard. They repaired cars and steam engines there and later even built a few steam engines, this is a picture of an R-1 Mallet built in Hillyard in 1929.
