1983: Floods come down, BDAC goes up

Equipment and workers toil to build a tunnel for the railroad to get moving through Spanish Fork Canyon again during June of 1983 after a huge mudslide directly wiped out rail lines and Highway 6. Another casualty of the slide was the small town of Thistle, which was inundated by water backing up behind the slide. Even though the water was eventually drained from the natural lake that was formed by the slide, the town was never rebuilt. Only some ruins and a few roof tops that are stuck on the mountainsides around where the water raised them still remain today, as a note in history of a town that once was.
