Boeing Train

I decided to take a break from the airport today and go for a ride with some friends to Wenatchee, WA. We didn't expect to see any airplanes in the Apple Capital but there was a Boeing train in the rail yard.

Bonus: A Navy P-8A.

Boeing train coming out of the Cascade Tunnel headed for Renton on April 1, 2010.

BNSF 767 at Skykomish, WA.


  1. Nice photos...where to the 737's come from?

  2. Interesting. Playing with google maps, there are several ways to get to Renton from here. Are they bringing 737 fuselages through the Cascade Tunnel??

  3. The 737 loads come from Spirit Aerosystems (former Boeing facility) in Wichita, KS. This is the plant that was hit by a tornado a couple of weeks ago.

  4. Thank you for adding the tunnel video--I learn something new every day!

    Thank you for this blog--I check it when I get home from work. The blog actually inspired me to take a long weekend and fly to Seattle for the Boeing tour a few weeks back. Wish I lived closer.


  5. I also would like to take a moment to say Thank You. I have only found this blog in the past few weeks, but it ad become the first thing I check when I have a few minutes on line. I love it!

  6. Those boxes only just clear that tunnel. Great videos, thanks for sharing them with us.


  7. BNSF had to cut a notch on each side of the tunnel roof when they started running the double stack trains, sometime in the 1990s I don't remember the year though.
