    Does that mean that these ugly appendages, photographed in 2007, are gone from the clock tower? :tb-confused:

    Yes, those "ugly appendages" are gone. I'll get some photos as soon as I can.

    I took some photos outside this 4th of July.



    Sounds like I'll have to go back soon and take some more shots.

    Gosh, it would be awesome if they found an old, boarded, up room from the fifties, that was filled with a bunch of GN stuff! Brochures, menu's, train order's, etc. Like a little day in the life, and put it on display!
    To Dad, thanks for giving me my love of trains! Green signals, westbound...

    One small contribution to this end: as of August 16 (my most recent trip to Vancouver, BC), in the baggage area, there's a 1970 Great Northern calendar (Empire Builder-themed, the train in the Big Sky Blue-scheme) on the wall.

    I saw a TV program this morning on the life of Ray Charles. It showed two shots of the King Street station in 1960. The first shot was a set NP of F's pulling into the station and the second shot was a set of GN F's pulling out of the station. The only tall building in the Seattle Sky line before the 1962 Worlds Fair,(which I attended with my family) was the Smith tower. The King Street station clock tower was well set in a background of a clear Seattle day.

    I recently found an old, discoloring slide taken from the Smith Tower. It looks down on King Street, Union Station, and more. Dates form the early to mid-1950's. Quite a reminder of what was there when I was young.
