Flying back westbound through the Gorge from Idaho yesterday I came upon 4449, ATK 156 and train going the other way. Some photos:

Great shots!!:cool: In your first shot of Wishram, there looks like a fire train with a red caboose, anyone have a "land" shot of it? Looks interesting.


Fallbridge Sub MP 118.6
Very nice shots.

Heh, Heh . . . . That's some serious power on that fire train.


Marty, it runs on steam!
DANG, and I decided not go go chasing yesterday as I thought I'd seen the consist last week, missed one of the Amtrak heritage units...
Great shots, by the way...

Thanks again, Jeff! Amtrak 156 looks good behind the 4449 too. That red nose looks better than blue!:D
