Author: walstib

The Portland-bound Empire Builder rolls past the signal at West Tokio at 5:06 a.m. Tuesday, four minutes after sunrise.

That's beautiful.  My former Brit neighbor would have said, "You must have been up at 'sparrow's fart' to bag that one."

Thanks for posting,

Using bowling talk, that a perfect shot and score with engine 300 leading the Builder. Gets my vote for IOTD.

Great image Brian, thanks. Where exactly is West Tokio?

It’s between Ritzville and Sprague.

At one time, Tokio had a school, post office, and, I think, a store.

Now, it’s just two old grain elevators along old U.S. Highway 10, and some farms.

Geez talk about incredible timing! Great shot. How far out did you plan this shot? Is it a shot you kind of had in mind and seemed possible on the morning of given the train's location or does the train come through there pretty reliably at that time and you had this partiular morning on the calendar in mind? Based on shots on Taraval St. I would guess you'd have a handful of days where you could get this shot in terms of the sun's position. Must've been a great morning.

The elusive Big Yellow Ball makes an appearance - very nicely captured!
