BNSF 736, still in former Santa Fe paint, leads an eastbound stack train out of Vancouver, Washington along the former SP&S Fallbridge Subdivision. Trailing locomotives in the consist are BNSF 980, CN 2581 and CN 2546.
Late afternoon sun on the backdrop of the cliffs above Chamberlain Lake produce deep shadows. A BNSF grainer heads west on the the fill after crossing the Klickitat River at Lyle, WA. Another view here
BNSF #6602 is the rear DPU on a Inside Gateway Trunk train. This was the 1st test run with the GE test car right behind the two lead C4's... This was my 1st attempt at catching these second trip to the BNSF Fallbridge Subdivision..
This U-EVEROO had an interesting departure from Vancouver.. Needless to say, it was already a rough start to the outbound crew that was on BNSF #3008.. They had to take a loaded garbage train from Wishram to the landfill.. Just a stinkin' bad way to begin your day!!!!!!!!
Here is the BNSF 7685 east of Drano lake on the Fallbridge Sub. I was hoping for a westbound here at the SP&S Publicity curve, but alas I got a E/B M-VBCPAS instead.. Oh well, there is a next time.
Here is a Eastbound Empty Coal train at Avery, Washington. This is going back to the Powder River from Centralia, Washington. I looked at the color version and I thought Black and White would look better on this photo.
Here are some more GorgeRail photos from GR 2006. BNSF #4022 is charging east with a manifest freight about to go into the siding at Stevenson to wait for a few westbounds, the 1st one being Amtrak #27 west.
Here are some more GorgeRail photos from GR 2006. Here is the U-EVEROO racing past West Maryhill. Matt and I looked at each other and decided that we would chase him east.. Matt likes high hood locomotives and I love the MRL SD45's.. Enough said!!
