Huge amounts of freight are carried on these two mainlines to and from Portland where much then goes aboard ships to continue its journey across the Pacific Ocean. We also see Union Pacific's 4-8-4 #844 at the head of the Portland Rose tour, between Huntingdon and The Dalles. Our first section covers the route between Memaloose and The Columbia Hills State Park, as BNSF and UP freight trains head along the river banks through the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Dash-9 C44CWs, SD70 and AC45CE are just three of the loco classes seen. The Mount Hood Railroad is visited at the City of Hood River, where GP9, GP38, SD40, AC45CCTE, Dash-9s and SD70M are seen between here and Columbia Hills State Park.
Our next section features the lines as they run eastwards towards Roosevelt, BNSF Dash-9 44CWs and SD75M provide the majority of the motive power for unit coal trains, autoracks and long manifests. Union Pacific's mighty 4-8-4 steam locomotive 844 is featured too as we follow her as it heads west over the Union Pacific route from Huntingdon to Hood River. The loco is seen tackling the steep grades and is passed by a number of UP freights along this busy main line. In all, nine shots of the locomotive are included in this program. The locomotive is seen at Lime, Oxman summit, Hot Lake, Kamela summit, Mission, Le Page Park, Wasco and at McClure Lake.
