After a extraordinary part 1 of my railfanning experience, here is part 2 to wrap up my 2 part railfanning video of that day. Train #1: After meeting with the Empire Builder, a BNSF Canadian Manifest Train rumbles off the MP 18 siding and into the main line. Train #2: After meeting with the Manifest train, Amtrak Cascades Train #516 makes a station stop at Edmonds. It was running 15 minutes late due to the backlog of traffic thanks to the trespassing incident that involves a Sounder Train. Train #3: My final train of the day was a BNSF Garbage Train rumbling through Edmonds as it slowly picks up speed through the town. And that concludes my railfanning day. I am planning to railfan on Wednesday, so stay tuned for more train actions.
