    Busy night south of Auburn, Wa last night. The Talgo was doing 15mph due to a SB freight in the block ahead of it. 20210822_184531.jpg 20210822_184534.jpg 20210822_184540.jpg 20210822_184715.jpg

    Some older EMD hood units, like an ex-Santa Fe SD40-2 in the consist! 20210822_184543.jpg

    Has the Bypass reopened yet? I presume the Talgo set would use that route?

    Nope, still working on the PTC from what I've heard. Don't know why it's taking so long, sheesh!

    Now you have me wondering, pondering the same question. I wonder if they are simply spooked by the incident which brought this about? And are being very overly cautious?

    It's all set-up with signals, trackage with concrete ties, and ballast and all in place, but only Tacoma Rail still using it for locals. The depot in the Freighthouse Square is all set up for use, as the Sounders use it daily.

    I dunno why they're dragging it out so long. :confused:
