Bill, the garbage trains run from Spokane to Roosevelt, WA and back on the Columbia River to a garbage processing area.

Thanks Larry-I knew about Roosevelt and the west Cascades garbage. I didn’t know Spokane was shipping there as well.

Very nice series Larry!!

Christina, ya beat me to saying the 4723 is the Microsoft Train sim locomotive!!!

BB,
Spokane sends the trash to Roosevelt to be dealt with like the westside of the state, but in a lot more infrequent usage...    It's been a while since I have see and garbage/manifest go by me, though I would hate to have it temperature hot when it rolls by...    Whew weeeee!!!!!

SP8100, I get several garbage/manifest trains a week lately. I hear they also haul ash besides garbage. When I'm at Bauman Rd. I can sure smell it, lol.
