Mansfield Turn At Columbia River Bridge

April 1983.

BN 1792 and 1754 rev up after slowing to cross the Rock Island bridge over the Columbia River at Rock Island, WA, about 12 miles east of Wenatchee. The x-GN and x-NP GP9s have 40 empty 40 ft. boxcars in tow for a trip up the Palisades to grain elevators on the Mansfield branch. They will return with a similar number of loaded cars which will then move to Seattle for export.
