Alright. Here’s the logistics. I’ve got tix for Amtrak Cascades #500 up on the 26th of this month and returning on Amtrak Cascades #509. So get your tickets ASAP (Amtrak is the hot ticket these days) for the trip up. Here’s some of my ideas of what I’m planning to check out, photograph (hopefully videograph? Paul? Up for it?).
Upon arrival we’ll ride into the tunnel and take the first LRV back south toward Tukwilla. We’ll ride all the way through while keeping an eye out. On our return trip we can catch a stop or two and explore the surroundings for video, photos, and some lunch/dinner. One thought it to stop at Othello Station and pick up some Pho. Otherwise I am really up for whatever, even a complete alternate logistics situation. So shoot me an e-mail, leave a comment, let me know if you can make it or not – or just show up for train #500 the morning of Sunday the 26th.
Cheers to the flanged wheel venture.
