Edmonds Station 12-29-12

It was a drizzly miserable day, not they day I'd hoped for to try out my new camera.  I did a quick study of Edmonds Station, the train station in my home town, where you can pick up an Amtrak train that will take you up and down the west coast or a Sounder commuter train into downtown Seattle.

The station has some interesting displays of train memorabilia.

For the railfan, a GE Dash 9-44-CW locomotive, weighing about 212.5 tons, diesel electric power with a turbocharged V-16 diesel motor, with a fuel capacity of 5,000 gallons.  It was manufactured by GE Transportation Systems in Erie, Pennsylvania (source: Wikipedia).
