Maintenance Of Way : Installing a Mainline Turnout

Tuesday April 2, 2002 our construction crew cut in a #24 switch at Auburn, WA. Auburn is located south of Seattle on the BNSF Seattle to Portland mainline. The Stampede Pass line connects with the mainline at Auburn.

This is part of the upgrades we're doing to be able to run more Sounder commuter trains. This particular location, milepost 24x, will be a new control point with two #24 crossovers. We build the new switch directly across from where it will be placed in the mainline. All that has to be done is slide it into place. I brought my work camera with me for this one. All photos are Fuji Provia 400F taken with a Canon Sureshot 120.
