    It’s the Columbia River Route. It’s an older route I’ve been working on. I grew up watching trains along this route and the route to Seattle hopefully it looks somewhat like it.

    Let's get a little "classic" here...Today was a rare day as a bunch of boxcars were pulled from the East end of the Reno Branch* and brought down to Portola, CA., to be joined with the Canyon Crawler (Flyer).

    Images 1&2) Overhead the Chilcoot Tunnel (should be named Beckswourth Pass), the train pulls off the Reno Branch at W. Reno Jct., and heads West as a BNSF trackage train holds the main.

    Image 3&4) Passing through Hawley siding, the empty boxes meet the UP Business Special seen elsewhere further down the line.

    Image 5&6) Arriving Portola, CA., the boxcars meet a Z train at East Portola who just got a fresh crew and is waiting to head East. Image 6 is the rear DPU's of said train waiting at Portola Depot.

    Image 7&8) Pulling further into the siding to clear East Portola, the UP1972 West throttles down to keep the empty boxcars at bay behind them.

    Regards,

    -Frank C.

    Waiting for westbound Amtrak and Oil train to clear single track down the line. Stopped in Wishram, Wa (wip) with grain empties. Headed for Spokane, Wa this train will continue east.
