They must have Freddie. Since forever trains originating out of Seattle going to Wenatchee went
the distance of 151 miles with hardly a problem in BN days. Most could make it 5-6hrs. That was
then. The make-up of trains going over Stevens Pass every day is now is 3-4 empty coal trains and
3 empty oil trains, the EVESPO/SPOEVE and several Z-trains each way and vehicle trains and Tacoma
to Chicago stack trains. Everything hot. The empty trains going after another load is high priority especially
the empty oil trains where its a million dollars to ship one loaded. So back to the new re-crew arrangement
it will announce many trains that used to pass thru Everett without a word to anybody. Trains that are photogenic.

Saturday everything right for train picture trip to Everett except no blue sky. It was that perfect 2hr trip
where there was something going on everywhere. Spent most of it in the "northern arena of Everett".
Visted Languth Park which sits between I-5 and Snohomish River and a view of BNSF Delta Yard sort of.
There was a garbage train leaving (EVEROO) and it was blocking the view of an empty coal train. Then
it was the BNSF 8562 coal train power sitting perfectly between a pier of the I-5 bridge over the Snohomish
River. Thats hard to beat. Then it was a slow drag race of a yard job and an oil train at what used to be called
"Long Siding" now track 311/312. The oil train goes to MP36 and "tie it down". Then it was catching a loaded
coal train leaving Everett northward over BR 37.8 Steamboat Slough. All this coal is going to a power plant
in China I found out. Then added my best pictures yet of the Rocky Mountaineer departing Everett north.
Nice day.
