BN GP-9 in 1986...Where???
Author: M-420

An Ex GN GP-9 and a GP35 doing local work at a grain elevator in 1986. Anyone care to venture a guess where this shot might have been taken?

Redmond it is - here's a pic of the same grain elevator, unfortunatley during demolition back in (I believe) 1999....

Track is still there, but the train rarely ventures into downtown Redmond anymore, as the last customer is a building materials yard a few miles north who get a car a month or so. There's a big hole where the elevator used to be, as I believe they're still in the process of cleaning up the site.

Yes indeed...it's Redmond. Of course at the time of this photo, the local ran all the way out to Issaquah along Lake Samamish.

As noted, the elevator's gone and trains almost never venture into Redmond now, unless they need to use the siding for a run-around move.

Good stuff, Brian.

Have any other "vintage" images from along the line to Issaquah, or rest of the Woodinville Sub? Would love to see it!
