Take a Cab-Ride with Milwaukee Trainman John Crosby on Number 200, Engine 189 an SD-40, on the MILWAUKEE ROAD COAST DIVISION. Othello, 208 miles from Tacoma Washington is our goal.

Number 200 is the hottest train on the railroad, timed freight tends to be carried in truck trailers and ocean containers on so called piggyback cars hauled by pig trains. 200 is a pig train, most of its freight comes out of the Port of Seattle, number 200 also tends to carry the import autos from the Port of Portland.

The Coast division was renamed Washington division in 1976, most of this Super 8mm footage is from 1978, the remainder in 1976.

See where a million dollar reefer load of uninsured Bellingham originated king crab ended up in eighty degree weather, the Railroad hired every high school kid in kidacas county to transfer that load to u-hauls.
