Leavenworth Snow Train - 12/8
Author: gsnyder

Last weeks run between Seattle and Leavenworth was cancelled due to mudslides, so this is the first one this year. I believe there are 2 more scheduled - on the 15th and 22nd.

Video from Carkeek Park in N. Seattle.

Nice sounding train set with no flat wheels and also a decent sized consist and with 2 domes,a real treat. I wish I were on board. I like the video staring with the train off in the distance. Thanks for a look at a train many of us would never have seen and a lengthy one at that. I suspect those last two cars are PV.

Yes, those last two cars were the Silver Lariat and the Silver Solarium.

I believe the Washington Casscades have been hammered with snow. And Colorado is finally getting some good accumulations today.

No snow down in the valley. Snow high all-around, and through the pass.

Actually, there are three domes on the train. Two private short domes and one Amtrak full dome.

..>And no one noticed that we are led to believe - by the film's caption title - that this was shot two years ago?

Thank you for some wonderful footage I should have seen for myself. Carkeek's my stomping grounds, I just don't stomp there enough. ;(

I didn't even notice that---the date at the beginning on the screen says December 2010---two years ago---but the description says it was the first one run. I wonder which this is: Two years ago, or just the other day?

No, it's Saturday December 8th, 2012 for sure - I can tell by the mudslide the previous weekend. This is the Stevens Pass corridor route BNSF and Sounder/Amtrak trains rely-upon so heavily. Since it's an all too-common an occurrence, I guess these folks can handle a mandatory 48-hour shutdown every time it happens.

If only they had an inland corridor...no, wait: That would put trains in too many people'$ backyards.

Oops, editing problem. It is indeed the train from this past Saturday (Dec. 8, 2012)
