GP9E's on Train #302
Author: funnelfan

River City Modelers in Spokane is having a operating session tomorrow morning, and people are welcomed to come and watch (or be suckered into being a brakeman). So I still need to post the photos of the second train I ran during the last session on the 16th, train #302 (I think that was it), a Jefferson to Eastern road freight with some work enroute. I used my pair of SP GP9E's for power. I really do love these units for switching work!

1. Just out of Jefferson crossing the Whiskey Creek Gorge.
2. Dropping a car at a Columbia Transfer in Elsie. No doubt a carload of booze for the bars that serve the loggers and quarry workers of this region.
3. A westbound counterpart train was holding the siding and can be seen leaving in the distance. I will have to work off the mainline picking up cars in Cedar Springs.

4. Down in the yard at Cedar Springs picking up a string of empty flatcars.
5. Power and the pickup is back on the train. After a set and release, I'm taking off in a hurry just as the Philmont Turn eases down toward the yard in Cedar Springs.
6. Golfers are making obscene gestures as I storm past the back 9.

7. Dropping down the grade past the paper mill in Philmont
8. Passing through River City as evening closes in on the town.
9. Dropped the train on Arrival 3 at busy Easton Yard. Will run around the caboose and tie up for the day.

That's a lot of wood chips in the pile.

Sure looks like a neat RR to operate on.  And that looks like a vintage Heljan enginehouse in a couple of the pics.
