4993 at the Big Curve

Its a chilly, socked in afternoon as BNSF 4993 leads a south-bound around the big curve at MP-7 of the Oregon Trunk. The two DPUs can be seen in the distance.
May have been chilly but it certainly is cool. Do you foot the two miles in from public access at Moody? I assume you go for it while the train is still at Wishram. Amusing no river traffic delays, how long does it take these days? Are they getting the OT track warrant while still at Wishram?
Thanks, everyone.
I was out hiking at moody and heard over the radio about the TW for southward movement. Fortunately, the trail along the river is still in pretty good shape, so i hoofed out to the big curve. The culvert beneath the ROW right here is a rather large one for cattle movement, so its an easy access to the hillside without having to "trespass". I'll give credit to the camera's high speed frame rate for the luck of getting the entire train into the shot. I think I snapped about a dozen frames or more as they brought this one around the curve.
