Remarks & Notes 
Camas Prairie's log train from Headquarters, Idaho, crosses a trestle at Konkolville near Orofino on Aug. 17, 1977, as it heads for Lewiston to complete its 82-mile run behind four Geeps from its joint owners (UP 247, 285, 210, BN 1701). CMP crews preferred the brake valves on UP Geeps over those of BN, hence UP GP-9 247 is in the lead.
