Westbound swings out over the coulee floor.

Westbound stacks continue downgrade toward Trinidad and Wenatchee. These shots are all framegrabs from digital video and were taken from essentially the same vantage point. The trains came so close together that there wasn't time to move to a new location!

Morning light favors traffic on the Trinidad leg of the loop, while afternoon light favors the Quincy leg. The trick is to get the trains to run eastbound in the AM and west in the PM.
