Check out my video of Portland & Western train 664 operating in Tigard, Oregon. It just so happened to be snowing a bit this day. Please rate and subscribe for the best of Willamette Valley Railfanning.
Check out those stares I'm getting as I shoot multiple photos! The woman on the car looks absolutly scarry!!!
No doubt heading outbound from Augusta, GA and The Masters Golf Tournament (speculation), the NYC 3 Portland private car was seen on the tail end of Amtrak 19 in Birmingham, AL.
I bought a photo of the Timken (NP 2626) recently that has something I can't figure out. This is a shot taken while she was on display at Portland, Oregon, shortly after the NP acquired her in 1933.
The 3rd car back has me stumped! Any idea what railroad, and if so what colors was it...
On a very warm day in May 1992, Amtrak #26 departs Portland Union Station. This photo was taken from the window in VC Tower. The operator had all of the windows open and was kind enough to allow me to come up and take this shot. Even with a 24mm lens, it was impossible to not to have that...
Probably one of the best views in town is the Broadway Bridge. You look west you see downtown Portland and if you look east you can see the Steel Bridge, Convention Center, Mt Hood, and UP1988? Yes, looking a little out of place Miss Katy can be seen Shoving her train along the Willamette River...
Nighttime at Portland Union Station. One of the Amtrak Cascades trains lays over as a baggage cart crosses to meet another train as it arrives. Portland Union Station is over 100 years old and is a landmark in Portland.
The SP&S 700 leads the ORHF Holiday Express in Portland, OR on Saturday, Dec 5, 2009. The extreme cold weather produced beautiful vapor plumes while running along the partially frozen Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge pond.
On the same day as the other photo, the BN 214 picks up a car along NW 15th Ave in Portland. I can't remember who the customer was, it may have been the Meier & Frank wearhouse. After 12 years some of the details have slipped my mind.
