Remarks & Notes 
The first train across the new Sounder Tacoma bridge, is this test train. After delays due to unfinished guard rail, the train crossed the bridge at 9:45 pm. In this shot, it's on its way back to the temporary coach yard. Service is expected to resume by Wednesday 2/22/2017 in the afternoon.

All passenger trains through Tacoma will move to this station and the new Bypass-Bypass route some time in 2017. Once the concrete bridge is complete as a single track structure, the wooden trestle will be razed and the second half of the concrete structure built. The end result will be a two track bridge.

An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
