Marty, it runs on steam!
No idea what they’re doing there, but the Tacoma Rail’s coaches came into Dupont at some point since yesterday.

Tacoma Rail Passenger Cars

The cars were in the BNSF Tacoma Yard Wednesday evening when I drove south on 509 at 5:45 PM. When I came back North at 7:45 PM, two BNSF Locomotives were hooked up to them.

Always wonder why TMBL needs passenger cars. They usually just move back and forth in front of TMBL building.

The cars were sitting sans power down in Nalley Valley today between Union Ave and 35th. Looked like they weren't occupied.
