Remarks & Notes 
BNSF 5915 brings up the rear of an empty oil train that is eastbound between Malaga and Rock Island, WA. The train with 464 axles was long enough to allow viewing of both the head end and DPUs as it started across the Rock Island bridge over the Columbia River. While empty oil trains use the Stevens Pass mainline, loads normally run west via the water level Columbia Gorge to Vancouver, WA, then north on the Portland-Seattle mainline.
