Mikael and Carl,
From the correct shape file, the point touching the bounding box on the Eastern side is 2345137.5423228294, 1430204.1095800549. Comparing these with numbers from proj with the lat/long inputs, the easting is within 0.1%, and the northing is within 1%, which I believe is close enough (for points picked from on line maps).

The following two return the exactly same numbers when I input -116.463726 45.614818:
proj +proj=lcc +lon_0=-120.5 +lat_0=41.75 +lat_1=43.0 +lat_2=45.5 +x_0=400000 +y_0=0.0 +units=ft
proj +init=epsg:2992
Now I have to figure out how to merge the change file coordinates into the original file!
Thanks for solving the Lambert Conic Conformal (2SP) problem!
Rick

Carl,
In fact, I don't think you are missing anything.
I made a quick back-of-an-envelope calculation - not using
proj, just a plain calculator - starting with the projection
origin, assuming 111120 meters per degree of latitude,
and 111120 * cos(lat) meters per degree of longitude.
For the test point, I got
Easting = 1408985 ft
Northing = 2341613 ft.
That's close enough to your (Carl's) result, with my simple method.
I may have made a mistake, but Rick: could you double-check your expected coordinates - I am pretty sure they are wrong.
Regards,
Mikael Rittri
