I found a new spot along the UP and I thought it was a good one because a lot of bikers use the Eastbank Esplanade in Downtown Portland. Plus many railfans come here because it is near Albina Yard, One of the largest rail yards in Oregon. We got UP #8548 leaving Albina with this Manifest and it is going South on the Brooklyn Sub. Then UP #7917 was slow enough for me to get another shot of him, with 2 SD70Ms sandwiched in between 2 GEVOs, and they are both 7900 series units and the #7923 is number #124 in 125 unit order for UP & General Electric, and plus it is in this year's edition of Trains Magazine's special collector magazine "Locomotive 2008".
