Re: Cascade Wreck 18 December 17

Amazed that happened yet the 601 and 627 still sit on the property. Maybe cause the 601 and 627 are owned outright by Amtrak and the 1402 was owned by ODOT/WSDOT, so they had alot of say with Siemens on what they wanted t they wanted to do. Just an educated guess? To me, the 1402 looked decent post...
