Power in the Palouse
Author: Goatboat

While driving home from Pullman, Washington on Sunday, I followed the Palouse River & Coulee City tracks west to Endicott and La Crosse.  These three Watco units parked along the line.

1. At Mockonema, I found WAMX 4046 parked at the McGregor facility.  I have been told that this siding is currently where revenue service ends.  This GP40 was built for New York Central in 1967.   

2. Further west, I found WAMX 5012 and WAMX 4043 parked at Winona.  The GP50 was built for Chicago & Northwestern in 1980, while the GP40 was also built for NYC in 1967.

3. This car may be my new foammobile.  While it won't get into a lot of places, I suspect it will be useful for chasing Z trains in the Columbia River Gorge.
