Nice pics. That was the last one I needed to complete all six of them. Maybe it will come back this way again.

It came back tonight leading 63 trailing elephant. It was so late I wasnt even paying attention for it since 643 came an hour or more ago.

yeah, why the crawling pace today?  they were doing about 40 on their way out of Battle Ground, but then stopped on a dime south of Ash Grove.  One man on the ground walked the train.  Wasn't until Reynolds they kicked it up, but then they slowed again well before usual outside of Monon...

Evidently #66's presence in the area is due to some required inspections.

Still working out of Washington DC as of today.

Reportedly on the Crescent, picking up the museum train from Meridian and maybe depositing it at Atlanta.

184 has been on the Coast Starlight.  The northbounds are detouring by way of Tehachapie for a good bit of February.
