The 8444 pulled a special from Portland through the Deschutes Canyon to Bend and return (two days). UP 6085 helped. UP has trackage rights on this line. Note the two tone gray paint job on the 8444, which I really like. Not too long after this the 8444 got its old number back.
The Oregon Trunk, the route most well known for the Deschutes Railroad War, still sees BNSF-and at times detouring UP-traffic today. This album covers all images taken along the line between Celilo and Chemult, Oregon.
