RAIL NOW!



Large, blue diesel locomotive in station

A Sounder heavy rail commuter train has just pulled into Everett station on a March 2007 afternoon. After all of the passengers have exited, the locomotive will push the train further back to make room for the next train. Sounder trains are a push-pull operation, with the locomotives at the front of the trains from Everett going into Seattle in the morning and at the rear of the trains returning to Everett.

Eastside Rail Now! proposes that a commuter service likewise be operated on the Eastside railroad, with trains running over existing tracks all the way to Everett or beyond in the north and to Tacoma or beyond in the south. (Photo: Eastside Rail Now!)
