BNSF crosses the mighty Columbia River at Rock Island, WA.
Bridge was built in 1892 for the Great Northern Railway, increased traffic and weight of trains necessitated reinforcing the main span with an outside truss in 1925 hence it's unique appearance.

In the early morning a partially dressed BNSF 4837 strides across the Columbia River at Rock Island, WA. The dispatcher referred to the Seattle - Chicago intermodal as the "Sea Chicken" when it left Wenatchee a few minutes earlier. Someone has a sense of humor early in the morning. 740 AM 9/13/1998
