BNSF 7486 serves as the DPU on grain empties heading back to the Heartland for another load as seen from high above the Columbia River near Lyle, WA.
After climbing for about 20 minutes up the hill and waiting for nearly two hours, finally we got a train shortly before sunset

The Santa Fe lives on...sort of...on ex-BN tracks...and a modified Warbonnet scheme....close enough for me. An eastbound is seen popping out of one of the tunnels at the Lyle highway rest stop.
