    Mile Post 18 news

    Thread Starter: Bill Anderson

    Rather than start a new thread every time something news worthy passes by MP 18, I am going to post it on this thread. Others are welcome to post their photos here if they too see something interesting roll through Edmonds. Today a private car was attached to the rear of the eastbound Empire...

    Some photos of my railfanning around the East Bay

    SD75I-3? at Interbay. BNSF 283 is at the service track at Interbay Roundhouse 8/28

    Thread Starter: BNSFEng

    I saw the repainted and overhauled BNSF 283, SD75I this evening, Monday August 28, 2017, at the Interbay Roundhouse service tracks.
