This is not really just blowing my own trumpet. I put this image on flickr back in September, and it has had nearly 500 views since then. But recently it got “faved” by someone calling themselves WSDOT. Now that is not unusual with transport fanatics. Some of my friends have been gently chided for appropriating official logos and stuff such is their devotion to certain corporate entities. But it turns out that WSDOT is just what it says it is.

We are the Washington State Department of Transportation. We get some amazing photos from crews working across the state and we thought Flickr would be a great avenue to share them with all of you.

And you can see them here. And in a rare self denying ordinance I will say nothing about BCMoT or Mainroad.

    It’s a beautiful picture! My only trip on AmTrak was the Acela between NYC and D.C. but I love rail travel. Not because of some nostalgic harkening to North by Northwest scenes, but because it’s serene, melodic, and very reliable. Well, most of the time.

    On a slightly darker note, there’s an unattributed quotation known in my family: train crashes you are there, plane crashes you are where? Bad grammar, but point taken.
