  1. Tunnel 20

    Tunnel 20

    Northbound Amtrak Coast Starlight 14 pops out of tunnel 20 at Wicopee, OR on the Union Pacific Cascade Crossing
  2. Wicopee, OR

    Wicopee, OR

    A northbound UP manifest drops down the UP's Cascade line and is nicely framed by this SP signal bridge. Dispatcher 68 was nice enough to send us three freights (and Amtrak) down the hill in rapid succession into this beautiful morning light. The rest of the day was a bust, though.
  3. Baretable at Wicopee

    Baretable at Wicopee

    An amply-powered northbound Baretable works it way downgrade through Wicopee, OR.
  4. UP 5021

    UP 4208

    A northbound UP mixed freight makes it's way down the grade at Wicopee, OR
  7. Uphill at Wicopee

    Uphill at Wicopee

    Southbound Amtrak #11 charges uphill towards Cascade Summit, OR, at Wicopee. It had just had to come to a stop one siding back at Heather in order for the crew to restart a shutdown trailing unit due to an overheating condition. I'm sure they are wondering here if they will make it to the top of...
  8. Amtrak 64

    Amtrak 64

    P42 64 leads the Southbound Coast Starlight past Wicopee.
  9. UP 4845

    UP 4845

    SD70M 4845 leads a Northbound baretable train past a water spout near the North switch at Wicopee. The water spout and nearby tower still had water flowing through them, so it appears that the water spout is still usable.
  10. UP 4208

    UP 4208

    SD70M 4208 leads a Northbound manifest train through a cut at Wicopee.
  11. Amtrak 192

    Amtrak 192

    UP 5333

    UP 5333 leads two other C45ACCTE's "elephant style" on a Northbound manifest train at Wicopee siding on UP's Cascade Crossing. The SP signal bridge will be replaced at some point in the future, part of UP's re-signaling project in Western Oregon.
