Surprise!

On each side of the Columbia River, mighty railroads run mile long unit trains back and forth throughout each day.  But then this one shows up...   One locomotive, four tank cars, and a caboose!  I haven't seen a caboose on a train in years.  Where ya goin' little guy?

I can see, you have become a train watcher (collector)
After all, the conductor is no longer on the train, everything is automated.
Caboose may rent for experience traveler, maybe nobody knows what is inside the tanks ..

Terrific photo with the reflection in the water. This train is so small it looks like an HO gauge model railroad.
