For a few days in April 2018, SP 4449 lead a shiny string of silver BNSF business cars along the Columbia River Gorge between Vancouver and Wishram, WA. The locomotive was invited by the BNSF to participate in the taping of a promotional/educational IMAX film to premiere sometime in the future. I chased the train on April 11th, starting in Vancouver and making my way down the line to Skamania. This was one of several stops that the train made so the film crews could reposition the large IMAX camera. At Wishram, the train was turned on the wye and stopped in Avery for servicing and more camera adjustments before continuing back to Vancouver. With the recent announcement of Amtrak no longer wanting to sponsor charter excursions and special trains, the future of 4449's mainline outings is uncertain. The locomotive's all-volunteer crew have a good relationship with BNSF and events like this help to ensure that the engine will be invited back, at least on private occasions. All footage was filmed with my Samsung Galaxy S7 and edited with VideoPad video editor. Be sure to watch in 1080p and turn up those speakers! As always, thanks for watching!

WOW! Being from Washington and having traveled the Gorge many times, this was a real treat. We used to ride our motorcycles to Banks lake twice a year for the Blues Festival and have crossed those tracks. I have to say, I'm very jealous.
Thank you for sharing, that was truly AWESOME!

Here's a really nice video by Dan Scheidell. I've just contacted Dan and I'm hoping to convince him to join the forum and post more of his awesome aerial photography.
