Railfanning Seattle's North Portal

I live up the street from the North Portal in Seattle, so it's easy to railfan there. The northbound Sounders take commuters up to Edmonds and Everett, and the Eastbound Empire Builder departs around 4:40 PM. This was the first evening it's been light enough to go down there and catch this action. To my surprise I also got an oil train and an intermodal train, all within 12 minutes.
