Later it was certainly used to be able to run around an Olympian Hiawatha by a Bipolar, but as far as I know the original intent was to head north.
Also, the very southern bit of the Seattle Transit Tunnel actually started out as a rail tunnel for UP and MILW to head north, Milwaukee of course already having assets up around Belingham and Everett, as well as on the Olympic Peninsula that were only accessible by rail barge.
I actually find...
What you saw over Stevens Pass was most likely a consist of UP units that BNSF is using to power a BNSF train. UP does not have trackage rights over Stevens Pass.
UP does however have trackage rights from Portland to Tacoma on the BNSF, an arrangement that goes back to the NP/GN days. Between...
Could you not fabricate a new cardan shaft?
It is a headache, I know firsthand. I changed careers and the truck I was assigned kept throwing codes about the stupid DPF...
I also once saw the Google van involved in an accident on...
This is awesome!
I remember seeing the locomotive in Moses Lake as a little kid and always wondered about it... And when I was in Alaska I saw a book about the exploits of locomotive number 557... I had no idea that these were one and the same until now.
Wow those are some shiny wheels.
Glad to see you made it outside, April! Sometimes you just need a break.
I see no link , but am interested in more about this...

Take them to your local hobby shop and they can set you up there. Look in the yellow pages under "Hobby"
If you actually manage this, it will prove that anyone can do anything in America.

They don't need to, unless I am much mistaken. As previously manufactured equipment, they do not fall under the auspices of the EPA Tier 4 emissions requirements.
If a locomotive has been remanufactured, then it would have to meet the EPA requirements.
Any new locomotives manufactured by EMD...
RGT is Rivergate, Portland, OR
NWE is New Westminster, BC
The city does seem to have undergone a renaissance then. There is a visible homeless population up around the Pearl District and Chinatown but I think that as long as you keep moving they'll let you be.
One place to definitely go is Powell's books, which is at about 10th and Burnside. Quite an...
The minor league ballpark (formerly called PGE Park) is no longer such. It is now Jeld-Wen Field, home of the Portland Timbers MLS team.
The basketball stadium is Rose Garden Arena, adjacent to the Rose Quarter TC MAX stop.

Here is something you can do about luggage: Assuming you have time to go sightseeing in the time before your train goes (I don't necessarily recommend it, unless on 508) you can check your luggage at Union Station for $5 a piece (business class is free, but that was in Seattle and may be...
