Journey to northwestern Washington State where the BNSF main line
reveals the beauty of Puget Sound. Running between Seattle and the
Canadian border at Blaine, trains traverse the western portion of the
Scenic Subdivision and the entire Bellingham Sub.
Visit the Seattle waterfront and busy yard at Interbay. Follow the
shoreline of Puget Sound while viewing several hot spots including
Carkeek Park, Richmond Beach, Edmonds, Mukilteo, and Everett.
The scenic shoreline transitions to lush farmland, wild rivers, and
secluded coves while passing the charming communities of Stanwood, Mt.
Vernon, Burlington, and Bellingham.
Unit coal, crude oil trains, and hot shot intermodals draw the latest
high tech diesels, while several locals still sport vintage four axle
EMD’s. Besides freight, Amtrak’s Empire Builder, Cascades Talgo sets,
and Sounders are everywhere shuffling passengers between busy stations
along the line.
This is modern day railroading in the heart of the Pacific Northwest!
