    There’s a train parked on Spokane steeet for tha last 15 min. If your maps tell you to jump down to Spokane street on your way to I-5…. don’t. The one day I have a medical appointment in North Seattle and an hour wasn’t even enough!

      Thanks. We were just wishing yesterday for a map that showed trains – or the train version of flight trackers – we were dropping someone off at the Bolt Bus stop in the ID and got stuck on Lander with one freight train headed south, one headed north. At least the flyover bridge is on the way for that street.

Sorry, comment time is over.
