An eastbound UP freight between Hinkle, OR and Spokane, WA has to cross the mighty Snake River on the equally impressive Joso Bridge. Here UP 5362-5547-5546 move their 107 car train over the bridge. This bridge is about an hour from anywhere else and with only about 6 trains a day on the line, its easy to think that you'd have to wait hours for a train. My total wait time, 10 minutes! Just lucky for once.
