Re: BX 100 - odd car found at Bellingham, WA


I can understand why the state utilities board might want to certify
scale test cars or maybe brake sleds (or at least the brake equipment
thereon); it's less clear why they'd care about an idler.

Ferry operations between Seattle and Bellingham ceased well before
1979--around 1954 IIRC. Following that date the Milwaukee used
trackage rights from Renton to Everett on the NP and then Everett to
Bellingham on the GN. The apron still exists, but it seems unlikely
BX 100 was an idler if it was restenciled in 1979.
