Oregon Trunk

Distributed power units on the rear of the BNSF's Vancouver to Barstow freight train at Shearers Bridge, Oregon.

Today's excursion into the Columbia Gorge included a side trip on the Oregon Trunk (OT), the BNSF line that runs north-south through the middle of the state. All indications pointed to two southbound trains in daylight, an auspicious line-up for this scenic but lightly-traveled line. In fact only one materialized, the Vancouver to Barstow train, and we waited another two and a half hours for a second train that never came. Just another day on the OT.
