Southbound solid grain train just rolled to a stop at the depot in Bend, OR, for a crew change, 7:00am on Weds. 7/27. 7864 on lead (I think), running 3x2.

This is not a Canadian canola meal train, it is mostly BNSF covered hoppers with an assortment of misc. cars.

Not many of these come through here!

Rolling south right now (7:20am).

it was the G-MCOBAR-8-21

The lead unit was 7857 when I saw it. It arrived in Pasco Monday around 6:30PM, went into the grain yard, then came out of the grain yard around noon on Tuesday to head to wishram.

I probably got the road# wrong. Two ES44DC's and H1 Dash-9 #964 on the lead, and two H2 Dash-9's as rear DPU's.

Is this considered a unit train, or is it a solid train of individually-billed grain cars?
