(distant and somewhat blurry) Railroad picture of the day

A W&P/P&W freight crosses Milwaukie&Clinton&11th&12th

My plan this morning was to ride to work via 17th, Powell, and 12th until I reached Harrison and could go across to the Hawthorne bridge, but just as I turned the corner onto whatever the street is called between Powell and Clinton (Milwaukie? 12th? Mileleventwelve?) a southbound P&W train came hustling along.

So instead of riding up to Harrison I instead went down to the river and took 4th to the Hawthorne bridge onramp, but before I did that I dragged out the CBC and managed to coax a picture or two out of it before the lead engines completely vanished.
