|The motormen's bunkhouse (structure at right) was located adjacent to the main track. It dated from the introduction of electric locomotives in 1909 and was a wood structure. In the immediate aftermath of the March 1, 1910 avalanche, the bunkhouse served as a temporary hospital for the survivors.
||Until these photos resurfaced, historians were not sure what happened to the bunkhouse. Now it is believed that during the winter of 1913/1914, a fire started in the bunkhouse. Wood construction combined with limited fire fighting resources in Wellington doomed the structure.
