Railfanning Anacortes, WA

There aren't many trains, perhaps two or three a day, and the weather isn't always great, but when it is, it's spectacular.  Anacortes, WA is home to two oil refineries that are fed by rail and ship.  The oil trains cross the Swinomish Channel over an old swing bridge.  This video features a liquified petroleum gas train arriving at dusk, and an empty oil train departing at sunrise.
