Before UP started abandoning routes, Oregon lumber traffic out of Eugene historically traveled the SPs Modoc line from Klamath Falls, OR to Flanigan, NV and thence through the SP-UP gateway at Ogden or via the old D&RGW once it became SP. After the SP was absorbed by UP, the Modoc line was soon made redundant by routing North Platte traffic north to Portland and down the Oregon Short Line. North Platte to Eugene symbol MNPEU has a good roll on a train of mostly empties as it climbs the grade from Medicine Bow to Ramsey. Following the UP leader are two C&NW Dash-9s, the 8657 and 8672.
