On the up grade near SR28

Two geeps pulling empties up the grade near the SR28 overpass.  These locomotives had just crossed Bridge #1 and is ready to past under the highway overpass.  Picture taken in 1983 by John P. Henderson.  This picture is taken about halfway between the Columbia River Siding and the Bon Spur Siding.
