    So I now see. Are you going to remove the 804x528 Durango & Silverton shot as well?

    Oh, I was looking at the maximum 300k limit instead.

    Pringle Creek Bridge

    Nothing special, but it's unusual that I actually get an assignment shot in the same month. I'm modeling this area now on my layout, it's the Portland & Western RR's Oregon Electric mainline where downtown Salem becomes South Salem.

    I think I saw the video of this one... the F150 was fine because the trailer got ripped away from him. Fortunately the trailer wasn't loaded with anything dense either.
  7. GP9 meets SD9

    GP9 meets SD9

    PNWR GP9 1803 was assigned briefly as local power to Salem, OR in July, 2004. While I was down photographing it, the Albany Turn came through on it's northbound run - with some mildly unusual power of it's own in the consist - former SP SD9 #1852.

    I've never seen the inside of a toaster lit up like that - i'm not sure I even knew they had a door back there. Fantastic shot.

    Albany Orphan

    A lone SP caboose remains at the Albany, OR yard on April 16, 2005. The yard is now owned by the Portland & Western and the caboose itself is now part of the UP empire, used on rare occasions by the UP Millersburg Roustabout.

    Comment by 'JeffShultz' in media 'Albany, Oregon Yard, P&W Railroad'

    Yellow passes by, occasionally drops off cars. P&W owns the yard now. Albany & Eastern occasionally stops by to pick up stuff as I understand it.
  11. Albany, Oregon Yard, P&W Railroad

    Albany, Oregon Yard, P&W Railroad

    Formerly the SP yard, it was taken over by the Portland and Western Railroad in the early 90s. The Toledo Hauler is preparing to depart and the cars of that morning's Eugene Hauler are on the Arrival/Departure track.

    Shelf Coupler

    I'd known that tank cars had shelf couplers, but never really looked at one before. This one was on a hazmat tanker on the UP Albany, Oregon based Millersburg Roustabout

    Nice photo - pity about the guy wire. Which railroad did this train actually belong to?

    Comment by 'JeffShultz' in media 'One Chance, One Train'

    What _are_ those cars? Weird caps on them.
  15. Toledo Hauler Departs Albany

    Toledo Hauler Departs Albany

    The daily Toledo Hauler departs Albany, OR at around 4:30pm on Saturday. It will arrive in Toledo, OR on the Oregon Coast in about 6 or 7 hours. The second half of the train is on the track immediately to the left of the last engine.

    Ted, Nice shot - I've taken similar ones from that spot. Lovely place for photos.

    Comment by 'JeffShultz' in media 'Rounding the curve to Summit'

    Is that three sections of the same train? Ah, no it isn't... finally figured out the description. Neat shot!
  18. BNSF 664 - Turning off Front Street

    BNSF 664 - Turning off Front Street

    BNSF 664, the BNSF local between Portland and Albany Oregon turns off Front St. in Salem, heading for the Labish Interchange, where it will switch over to the UPRR Valley Line for the rest of it's trip back to Portland.

    Comment by 'JeffShultz' in media 'Remote Control'

    Fantastic... although I hope the handrails survived the gloves.
  20. Two engines????

    Two engines????

    I'd timed this perfectly to get a going away shot of the trailing pusher on an Amtrak Cascades Train - except that unit was deadlined, and there was another engine pushing - that I hadn't seen around the curve as I set up the shot.
