Remarks & Notes 
An eastbound intermodal "K" Line train travels into the small town of North Powder. On the main, a Federal Railroad Administration geometry test car waits to head west. This car checks the gauge of the tracks as well as scan the rails for defects.

The FRA Geometry Test train can be found traversing the rails near Hot Lake, Oregon here.
