BN Intermodal Approaching Trinidad

Blair says:

"Bathed in the lurid hue of sunrise on the desert, eastbound hotshot train #4 climbs the 0.8% gradient away from the Columbia River on Burlington Northern's former Great Northern mainline between Wenatchee and Spokane, Washington, at dawn on September 17, 1991.

I was living in Spokane at the time, and a couple of hour drive to Wenatchee before sunrise would usually result in a fleet of eastbound intermodal trains to photograph in morning light climbing the winding gradient in and out of the coulees leading to the Columbia basin."
