On June 7, 1980 I was headed south on Interstate 5 and heard train RVMEY get a track warrant to proceed from Black Butte to Ashland. I managed to grab a couple pictures as the train slowed for the weigh in motion scale at Grenada. In January 1980 train RVMEY was scheduled to leave Dunsmuir at 100AM with six horsepower per ton. Later that year the schedule was altered and it was scheduled out of Dunsmuir at 1:00PM. On this day the train was pretty close to schedule. Disk 24
