2009 Feather River Route Centennial The underdog Western Pacific was completed in 1909 with the driving of a golden spike at the center of the Spanish Creek trestle, known today as the famous Keddie Wye. One hundred years later, the Feather River Route provides a vital transportation link as part of the transcontinental freight rail network.
