Photos: Pacific Northwest 2005 from the Archives

Union Pacific's "Challenger" #3985 crested the Cascade Mountains at Cascade Summit, Oregon on 7-September-2005

TORONTO, ONTARIO - For this week's update to my photo site, I have gone into the archives to present previously-undisplayed pictures from 2005.

With Union Pacific announcing that it will send a steam locomotive west for the 140th anniversary of the Golden Spike this spring, it seemed a good time to go back to the archives for my favorite chase of a Union Pacific steam locomotive, the "Challenger"'s first trip over the former Southern Pacific between Klamath Falls and Portland, Oregon in September 2005.

The same trip also involved visiting family and friends around Seattle, Washington including visits to the Woodland Park Zoo and Ballard Locks and a ride on Amtrak between Seattle, Washington, and Portland, Oregon.
