Reg,

Great shot.

The furthest I've followed the train there is across the swing bridge,

over the river in downtown Aberdeen, into the yard.

I haven't done any "chasing" in quite a few years. 
I was on an errand for work and happened to spot this operation.

The actual unloading tracks are bit oval,
just like the 4X8 layouts most of us started with. 

There is considerable amount of interesting trackage around the port area.

Hi Reg

Well it's good to see you getting out.

Great photos, and nice to see PS&P has some good business.

Does this power also go up to switch the SP mill at Shelton ?
Or do they use another set ?

Best regards

Alan

Alan:

Yes, I have to keep the water flowing. 

I would have to check numbers. 
There is a very similar set (with some others thrown in) that work from Elma to Bangor.
They are often parked by the old Simpson railroad dispatcher's office. 
Photos to follow.

The garbage train, that is a unit train of containers from various refuse transfer stations,
uses pass-through power, I think. 

At least, when I have spotted that train the head end power is BNSF. 
That trains shuttles between Belfair and Arlington, Oregon.

Here is what I have from Shelton. 

Judging by the numbers, they are different sets. 

But the Shelton photo is from October 2018, so not definitive.
