First Springtime Catch, First Snow in The Valley         
Not much traffic on route today due to washouts, fallen trees, caused by the freak up to seven inches of snow that had fallen in some areas, but mostly the block was caused by Amtrak 14 that apparently had an axle slip off the rail near MacReddie Springs with passengers having to take busses out. Now after almost three hours of waiting around Meadowview Rd (this location) for the 5211 to get a crew change, we finally saw headlights far off in the distance as the train passed the Irving Lead, picked up speed, and finally met my camera as it heads to Portland's Lakeyard.
