Excellent, just excellent. Especially the part passing the mothballed ships at Scopa just north of Renton. That is near where where Ivars and Kidd Valley are at Gene Coulon Park now. (and about 1/2 mile from where I am writing this) I still remember seeing those ships when my family would drive Lake Washington Blvd to go to Renton. Thanks for the memories!

I noticed it was filmed from a GP7 or GP9 at the start and from an F-unit later in the video. Nice.

Thank you. That was excellent. I really enjoyed and am especially intrigued by what appeared to be an aircraft fuselage on a barge with the mothballed ships at Scopa.

What is your malfunction?
Remember now, the NP ran on their own track through Renton, their wye was between the GN (former PC) wye and the current Tukwila station.
The NP ran along Grady way until it curved north to Burnett st.

Was the current Boeing spur part of the old NP main line?

What is your malfunction?
Yes, the current Boeing spur was NP, the NP main was further west from the current main (former PC)
