    Very little, much to my disappointment. Run-through power runs in spates, primarily NS and CSX units.

    A special three part adventure from Wednesday afternoon/evening (6/14/17).

    Part 1
    Two northbound (tt/east) coal trains were being held on the inside mainline between Edmonds and Mukilteo for the afternoon passenger parade. This is coal train #2.

    Why is today's Chicago bound Empire Builder (Amtrak #8) being pulled by two Genesis units?

    Because a heavyweight private car is on the end. Can you think of any better way to travel? The Sounder and coal train can be seen in the background.

    Passenger trains usually take the outside mainline regardless of direction.

    Part 3

    Later that evening I went to Brackett's Landing and got some beach side shots of a southbound (tt/west) freight.

    Dang, that would be a sweet ride on that private car. I also really like the third photo in the last post when that train just coming around the corner, where you can see the locomotives and just the first intermodal container, the one without the people.

    I went down to Sunset Ave. Thursday evening (6/15/17) for sunset shots. The sunset was not spectacular, but I got shots of two trains passing through using the 5DIII + 17-35L wide angle zoom mounted on a tripod.

    Northbound (tt/east) freight.

    A high green on the inside main appeared as soon as the freight cleared. I kept hoping the southbound (tt/west) would appear in time for the sunset. Alas, it was nearly dark before the evening Vancouver, BC-Seattle Cascades finally rolled by me. I need to learn remote flash photography.

    Remote flash would be once idea. A couple others would be to use a split neutral density filter but that might lower the shutter speed too much. The other idea is simply to lighten the lower half in Lightroom. Beautiful work!

    For a change of view, Saturday afternoon (6-17-17) I went a little ways north to Ocean Ave. where I photographed a coal train bound for Roberts Banks, BC.

    Head end power.
