And they just keep coming by
This is my train collection. I hope you enjoy them as I include more from time to time.
Below: Here’s a collage of some of my favorite train photos I took from my backyard in the last year.
below photo: Hello Wenatchee! Pulling up at night time. This is on the Empire Route going east to Chicago.
Below photo: Here’s an Amtak train just pulling up in the Seattle train station on King street. The dining car is expensive, but hits the spot if you board the train real hungry!
Don’t know what these brown cars carry , but when they come by there’s always a string of them.

Here’s the 4947 graffiti train which is being hauled to the left by other locomotives.
5308 pulling the 5378.

Train # 993 passes through this week along with the rain clouds.
Locomotives are hitched together. There were 4 on this load.
A sunny April day, the 7307 on the tracks.
The 661 Santa Fe that I have been waiting for 3 years to snap a photo of! It was around 6 am or so.
The 661 Santa Fe and the 4349 BNSF hitched together. This was March 2010 in my backyard.
Here’s the BNSF 748, red and gray. Note the vents/windows? on far left.
BNSF 5067 (look at the sun hit the letters in 2nd photo)
I saw another photo online of this train and I think it said “Union Pacific” on it at one time. I’ve only seen this train once before come by. Here are two photos of the train.
below photo: probably the only one that isn’t taken from my backyard. I took this pic downtown.
Above photo: Amtrak at 5AM, was a little late.
