Pool Trains - NP, GN, UP - February 14, 1954

This is an interesting look at the passenger trains and bus service operated by Northern Pacific, Great Northern and Union Pacific between Vancouver, BC, Canada, Seattle, Washington, and Portland Oregon.  At this time, GN still ran a Vancouver, BC to Seattle, WA all stops local train and NP operated a mixed from Centralia to South Bend as well as a train from Seattle to Aberdeen/Hoquiam, WA via the Fort Lewis line and Olympia.
