One thing that’s always been fascinating for me is watching big machines. It’s even more interesting when it’s one you don’t see that often. This time it’s the railroad track replacement machine.
We got out on the recently refinished NW river trail for a nice walk and some caches. We heard a train coming, like you hear so often along those tracks, but this time we were at a break in the trees at just the right spot to get a picture of it approaching.
Every time I go through Amtrak’s 30th street station it reminds me just how cool of a building it is.
