Default Wildfire damage on the Cascade and Columbia River RR

The wildfires in Washington state have been particularly devastating for many homeowners. The CSCD (a Genesee & Wyoming property inherited through the RailAmerica purchase) has been hard hit, as well.


The link below has some sobering HD footage of the devastation taken from a drone. Destroyed CSCD trestles are explored at the 3:40 point.

Thanks for posting.
EDIT: Ha, I should have looked at the first link. Amazingly, it burnt down to the bank of the Columbia River. Amazing videography.
