Wanted: Centennial Trail History

The Everett Herald has this item about a history project on the Snohomish County Park Centennial Trail:

Your photos, memories needed for Centennial Trail project 
"Snohomish County is asking people to share photos, stories, memories and other information for an interpretative project about the Centennial Trail and how the former rail line was used."

This picture shows the exact spot where a Centennial Trail trailhead sits today. The concrete pad still exists where the legs of the water tower were anchored (right side of photo). Snohomish County is working on a project to highlight the history along the Centennial Trail, which follows the original railway right of way built north of Snohomish in 1889 by the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railroad.
