Westsider Wednesday
Author: wye-it

Portland + Western’s SD40-2 #3369 leads the 2305 and 2308 with a 29-car Westsider up Lewisburg Hill just after sunrise on May 21.  The sound of three old EMD’s was fantastic.
At the 1:10 mark, notice a group of trees appear at the lower left.  Four years ago, these same trees claimed my 1st drone in my first-ever attempt to video a moving train. 
At about 2:00, the low light angle makes the trackside trees look like it’s Fall instead of Spring.

the video is north of Corvallis, Oregon ... the dot on the map is ....   "Lewisburg".

This is a pretty stiff hill.
Back in the SP days, this was 40 MPH territory. I suspect it's 25 now. But it has welded rail.
