    This is another northbounder with some really good power & a little bit of foreign power, and here is the 2nd train that is part of a parade of northbounds that either have been held up or the dispatcher decided to change things around since no southbounds were approaching. Now to my understanding, this is a rerouted stacktrain from Chicago which would normally go down Stevens pass or on the Stampede Sub, I don't know what that case was for this train to take the Lake Sub, becoming the Fallbridge Sub & then on the Seattle Sub.
    This is BNSF #5186 traveling slowly through Kelso with a nice crew & a trailing Norfolk Southern Catfish. This is NS #9666 trailing and so far this year, i've only seen a few of these units on the Seattle sub with all of them trailing.
    Speaking of the NS, as I pursuit my passion in Northwest Railfanning, over on teh NS side in North Carolina, things haven't been so great, there has been a big decrease in foreign power & almost every train that passes has nothing but C40-9Ws & repainted Conrail C40-8Ws, so, I left the south at the last second before railfanning in North Carolina's Norfolk Southern tracks started to decrease, although you'll still railfans out in Salisbury & in Raleigh every now & then.
