    Hello all, it's been awhile since I've posted. I was wondering if anyone knows where the old Northern Pacific Railway Depot from Arlington, WA is located. I recall reading that it had been moved offsite to private property a number of years ago (2005, perhaps?). I live in the Arlington area...

    Diamond that is a little higher than other is???

    If I remember correctly, at Disney California Adventure theme park, the frogs for the passing tracks on the Red Car Trolley use this same flange - bearing technology. Might be worth a look if you happen to visit.

    Northwest Spokane: street industrial tracks history/photos?

    There is an article on the railroads of Spokane in a 1950's issue of Railroad Magazine (there is a picture of a red Inland Empire Electric car on the cover of the issue). IIRC, it was the July 1956 issue. I have that issue in my collection at home. Perhaps there's some photos of what you're...

    This locomotive actually used to pull the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train in WA State. If I recall, the "Spirit of St. Louis" was an airplane. :)

    Any idea why they chose black this time instead of green?

    Didn't this section of track used to belong to the Washington Central?

    Great Photo! Love the bluish haze over everything. One question though. Are the words and numbers supposed to be backwards?

    Beachside railcar

    This was found on a lying on a beach on Whidbey Island, WA. The wooden frame lying at an angle seems to have four flanged wheels, as well as a small winch at one end. Several rails can also be seen lying around. I have no idea what exactly this was.

    Abandoned Rail

    Found this down at a park in Everett, WA, along the Snohomish River. Maps indicate a rail spur used to run here, and so does archeological evidence! This was one of two rails jutting out of the river bank. Other interesting artifacts such as a thick steel pipe/pole and a sunken cable lay around...
