    A light engine hop, probably the Gold Bar Turn returning north, passed 4354.

    Southbounds 4353, the short freight, and the oil tanker were stacked up waiting for the afternoon passenger parade, which consists of the 4:30, 5:00, 5:30, and 6:00pm Sounders as well as the 5:12pm Chicago bound Empire Builder (Amtrak #8) and the 7:17pm Vancouver, BC bound Cascades (Amtrak #516). My son and I left for home as we had no idea when the dispatcher could clear the freights through the two mile stretch of single track from MP 18 to MP 16 in between passenger trains.

    The evening Seattle-Vancouver, BC Cascades (Amtrak #516) was late, but I was still able to photograph it against the last remnants of sunset.
