Mudslides and downed trees along the Cascade Subdivision have caused track outages on the main line between Klamath Falls and Eugene, Ore. The first slide at Frazier is about one-fourth-mile long, 10-feet deep and growing, and Wicopee's is about 600-feet long and 10-feet deep. Frazier is the top and Wicopee is on the bottom. Happened 01-18-08.

Looks to me like an ongoing, recurring problem that will involve far more now than simply clearing the track. Some major re-engineering will be required for a solution to this problem., maybe even a relocation of the two lines.  Great photos.

That;s going to be one big bonfire!! Oh wait, that'll probably burn the ties, too.  Better turn a rotary in to a chipper....
