MILW 559 South #905
Title:  MILW 559 South #905
Description:  MILW train 905 departs Bellingham on BN tracks to Everett. Think a BN pilot was called for these MILW trains from Bellingham to Tacoma but MILW crews did the work. This train will enter the NP main at SeaLine Jct in Everett and do whatever MILW Everett has for the train. Then enter the BN Mainline at Lowell and run east to Snohomish Jct West where it will run the BN Woodinville Sub southward over the Maltby Hill and somehow come out at Tacoma. By far the slowest train between points A and B..A and B meaning Sumas/Bellingham to Tacoma
