A pair of GP40-2s slowly backs down toward Cedar Creek on the branch at Military Junction. The grade here is actually quite steep (in railroad terms). The local backs down the branch about a half mile to Western Metals Recycling. Western Metals fills gondolas with scrap metal...hence all the (empty) gondolas seen in this shot. All-Coast Forest Products will also take delivery of a center beam or boxcar (or two) of lumber. Those were at the end of the local and out of the frame here.
