    Default Video: UP 844 at 70+mph

    Here is a brief 25 second video I took of the 844 at Celilo doing every bit of track speed.

    Superb video Brian and thank you VERY much for posting it!
    FYI this location would be just south and across the Columbia River from Wishram, WA.
    Google maps shows this as a very small place called "Celilo Village".
    Here is a "TinyURL" link to the Google Map showing this location in the center:
