NWP Activity in March?

Any interesting rail movements in March? Haven't seen many train-action photos recently. Am in Seattle so unable to see NWP tracks clearly. Hope that there has been/is interesting activity going on. I suppose that rail train #5 has delivered more rail to NWP. How far has new rail been laid? I estimate that each rail-train has about 3.5mi. of track aboard with 50 rails of 1500 ft each cradled  on cars.  Steve

No rail activity since Jan. 18th?

 

No photos or videos posted since January 18th. Storm damage?  Been 2 weeks since last posted rail movement over NWP tracks. Anyone have photos/videos to post?

Photo #490

 

  I take it that photo #490 was taken somewhere within California. No information shown on photo site.
