Went out yesterday with a friend and railfanned Scenic Sub. It was incredibly wet!

First up, empty oil cans going into a siding at Baring to pick up an air quality technician riding on a westbound stack train to bring him back over to the east side.

This was a 3x2 train. The other rear DPU was a horribly faded incredibly ugly warbonnet (maybe a fake bonnet, didn't see the numbers).

The 4x2 eastbound stack moved to stage at CP Scenic.

FYI, the bridge at the 41st St Exit in Everett that goes over the tracks is now open. You can get access to a lot more spots for railfanning and photography and have access to the front of trains going into PA Jct or the eastbound's DPUs.

I'll be going back to Foss River and Scenic when the snow flies. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
