I can't remember where I just read this, but a significant amount of US to Russia "lend-lease" was shipped out of Oregon ports on Russian flagged merchant ships - remember that Japan and Russia were not at war until the very end of WWII. The material could not be armaments or munitions, but trains and food were ok. 50% of US to Russia "Lend-lease" flowed through the pacific route.
The Russian ships went to Vladivostok, and material would traverse the trans-siberian railway to get to western Russia.
Wonder how long it would be until those F30's saw PRR rails again...
