Remarks & Notes 
Thanks to some high tech info courtesy of David Honan (a new RP contributor) and his ATCS setup, we knew this train had begun it's slow journey through the darkness of the 7.8 mile Cascade Tunnel. This group, participating in Ross Fotheringham's annual Tracks in the Snow event, was also well equipped with radios and while waiting for the train, we were greeted with some discouraging words. Lost contact with FRED, may need to take the switch at Scenic and back out of the tunnel. Time to head for the warmth of our vehicles, and so we did. But not half way back, "we're on the move" crackled over the radios. A mad dash back to our staked out positions, mine being the most difficult to reach, only to wait another 5 minutes or so for the fans to slow to stop and the tunnel door to open. Plenty of time to read the graffiti on the bridge. Nine minutes later.. headlights, a roar of GE's, showtime! Click Here for a different angle and lighting of this scene!
