Blair says: "Eastbound CW local departs from Creston, Washington, in the twilight of F-unit operations in the Pacific Northwest. Three F9A's, an ex-SP&S F3A, a single F9B and two geeps make up the first-generation extravaganza on this train, returning from an overnight trip to Coulee City from Spokane. While largely a railroad dedicated to hauling wheat, a cut of woodchip cars had just been picked up in Creston."
