Celebration of Snohomish rail service


LINDSEY WASSON / THE SEATTLE TIMES

People near the U.S. Post Office on Woodinville-Snohomish Road see off speeder cars as they leave for Snohomish, for Let'er Boom, a series of events Sunday celebrating the first passenger service 125 years ago from Seattle to Snohomish via Woodinville. As part of the celebration, speeder cars -- small motorized rail vehicles used for track maintenance -- traveled from Woodinville to Harvey Field in Snohomish, following a VIP train carrying local dignitaries.
