Video - Doubleheader: UP 844 and SP 4449 through Puyallup, WA is a free online Railroad Discussion Forum and Railroad Photo Gallery for railroaders, railfans, model railroaders and anyone else who is interested in railroads. We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.


Here's a short video I re-edited last night and uploaded.

It's been in my collection for a while... It's from May of 2007.

Bonus: Amtrak Cascades comes through just prior to the UP 844 and SP 4449.

Cool meet. Thanks for posting.

I remember when that train came through Edmonds. I took my son down to the beach to watch it as he had never seen steam engines or "old fashioned" passenger cars. A day or two later we went down to the see the cars and steam engines on exhibit in Fife.


Pretty lucky. If that Cascades would have a touch later... I had that happen in Rawlins WY in 1981. Good view of the stack.

The train made a brief stop in Edmonds. I was told it then had to haul a** to get down to Tacoma ahead of the afternoon Sounder parade. 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.
