    A Maintenance of Way train tied up at the Edmonds spur before the afternoon passenger parade began.

    Whatever this is was mounted on a former Northern Pacific flat car.

    My kind of light power hop: a northbound (tt/east) set of Geeps in ABA formation.

    Friday (7/14/17) at the marsh.

    BNSF must have a power surplus to use two high horsepower GE's on a three car ballast train.

    A northbound (tt/east) had two of my favorite diesels, a Geep and a 700 series War Bonnet, as trailing units.

    My son took this interesting photo Monday (7/17/17) of a northbound (tt/east) passing the boardwalk and #1 viewing platform of the marsh.

    The term "foreign power" can take quite a literal meaning as we are less than 100 miles from the Canadian border. Spotting diesels of the CN and CP is not unusual, but FCM units are not so common.

    Does anyone know what the small red light above the left ditch light on the lead diesel is?

    The One That Got Away

    Wednesday afternoon (7/19/17) a short southbound (tt/west) freight with 3-4 Geeps as trailing units in the diesel consist passed the marina. Present in the consist was BNSF #60, a TCBC6. Unfortunately, I did not get a photo. Those living south of me might keep an eye out for the unit.

    Continuing the adventures of Saturday morning (7/22/17) from post 1833 on the MP 18 thread.
    http://www.railroadforums.com/forum/...8-news/page184

    I arrived at the marsh in time to photograph the freight leaving town after the Builder's departure.

    The new diesels have yet to show up on the train and a Genesis unit was providing the power.

    This consist is the same from last year's seawall rehabilitation project. It's a multi-year project. This particular car holds the bins of dry grout mix inside the container. A conveyor belt runs out the front and dumps the mix into the mixing machine. Up on top is the generator for the entire electrical system, bins of water used to mix up the grout and a hydraulic power plant.

    Advanced American doesn't have any railroad equipment, but they do get the occasional railroad project contract.
