    Happy Friday the 13th.

    If there is one thing I miss about Portland Or (and there's more than one), it is the opportunity to see this lovely lady.

    Why is it that I am always finding a photo opportunity, just as a thunderstorm is in the vicinity? As dark as this is, the hour is only mid-afternoon, a couple of weeks ago in Rathdrum, Idaho. BNSF #4622 has seven other units working with her, a bit unusual. The conductor was out on the walkway of a trailing unit, and they were barely crawling along, yet all rev'd up. This is an H-PASGAL, MRL crewed. A few miles more will be Sandpoint, Idaho, where they will swing onto MRL rails and dash on toward Missoula, Montana:

    Are any of their units still equipped for running long hood forward?

    Ken, it's obvious, Mrs. Murphy thinks you're cute, so she's always out there "helping" you....LOL

    Looks similar to a car I saw Thursday night in town, in the rain.
    Shoved back into storage area just east of town. Not sure if it was
    pulled out before the massive flooding in that area began! Saw cars with
    water up to the frame! Trucks totally covered!

    Hope this load I saw was going to be going through town, and not stopping!
    Ran home, grabbed camera, and looked for train!
    Went for nothing, since I did NOT have a media card in my camera!
    Nice photos.
