I would have loved to see the grain train with the pure SD60 consist as power. That is a great catch in 2020.

Another grest set of images. Pictures 1 and 2 make me remember my trip through your area in 2011. I was driving from Sandpoint ID to Kent WA with friend Bill. I could some trains along the way, including one grain with two CN units when we were entering Ritzville.
