    BNSF track projects, WA State 2014

    This track extension actually will go from East Babb through Cheney to Anderson Rd, east of Cheney. Wonder if they wish they had kept the SP&S between Spokane and Pasco?

    Yes. He liked the Milwaukee, mainly because of their electrics, but he also liked the NP, GN, and UP. He had a better camera than I did.

    UP 3227 train 62

    UP Train 62, seen here about 1952 at Pullman WA, ran from Ayer Jct WA to Moscow ID. Usually powered by Pacifics 3226 or 3227 in this era. The track, bridge, and station are still here in 2011 but the UP is long gone. The old Pullman city hall is seen to the left of the loco and the old...

    NIWX 375

    Now that most of MRL's older SD45's, the "flares", have been retired, It is nice to see one still alive and earning its keep. NIWX 375 works for the Eastern Washington Gateway Railroad and is seen on the Geiger Spur on 7/28/2011. This unit was ordered by the Pennsy in 1968...

    Great picture. I had heard stories about this loco but had never seen a picture of it. Truly, a picture is worth 1,000 words!

    Empire Builder crossing Spokane river

    Normally #7 rolls across the Spokane river East of Spokane in the middle of the night. On 2/3/2011 they were 13 hours late, making this picture possible. 2 of the 3 P42 units failed enroute, requiring the assistance of clean BNSF 5299.

    At least these cars actually resemble a PCC car. I wish that more of today's new streetcar systems had cars that looked like these.
