    Thanks. In this era of a handful of class I railroads and only 3-4 look-alike diesel models pulling mainline freights, it is the unusual equipment that keep things interesting.

    Wouldn't surprise me to see that winter park decal still on in late summer/early fall, and all beat-up and nasty looking...

    A southbound (tt/west) auto rack Saturday afternoon (6/17/17) had three 737 fuselages on the head.

    Wonder how many Boeing 737s they make every year?

    Good question. Here is a UK 737 technical site. http://www.b737.org.uk/index.htm

    Within the site is an interesting section on production that includes a link to a fast motion video of a 737 being assembled.
    http://www.b737.org.uk/production.htm

    From the article:

    25 Jan 2017 - Boeing on course to increase 737 production rate
    Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg reaffirmed on a conference call with investors on 25 Jan 2017 that the 737 prouction rate increases from 42 aircraft a month to 47 this year, and
    then to 52 in 2018 and 57 in 2019 are still planned and on track, despite the skepticism of some industry observers that future demand might not support the higher volumes.

    And even at that eventual rate in 2019, Muilenburg said, the company remains “oversold” on the 737. Boeing currently has a total of 4,452 orders for all variants of its 737 aircraft included in its unfilled backlog. "Simply put, this is a big attractive market and the 737 family's position within it is solid," Muilenburg said.


    It looks like I will being seeing 737 fuselages roll by for a few more years. Each fuselage number is visible as the fuselage passes by on the train. I'll try to get a photo of one the next time I see one trackside.

    Tuesday morning (6/20/17) I was bird hunting (with my camera, of course) on the Pt. Edwards walkway when the morning Vancouver, BC-Seattle Cascades departed Edmonds after its station stop.

    Is Cascades owned by Amtrak or do they just use their locomotives from time to time?

    I believe the Cascades is an Amtrak train (Amtrak appears on the equipment) that receives some funding from the states of Oregon and Washington. I think Genesis units are substituted when the regular EMD units are rotated out for servicing.
