1902 or 1904?[edit]

Article currently contradicts itself about when the line opened. - Jmabel | Talk 01:52, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

For what it's worth, almost all links I've found (other than those that rely on the wikipedia article) give 1904 as the opening date. Here's one link from a 2003 Seattle Times article: [1] — 02:12, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

1904 seems much more probable to me, since that is the date that Wilburton as a community claims as its origin. - Jmabel | Talk 04:56, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
Given a total lack of citation for 1902, I believe we should change this to say 1904, consistently. - Jmabel | Talk 04:57, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
Go for it. The 1902 date wasn't added to the article until November 2007. The same edit added a source that may have supported the date, but the link is inactive so I can't confirm this. The 1902 category was added in March 2008, most likely just following the infobox data. — Myasuda (talk) 05:38, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
