@37. Thanks Goldy. Please note that I wrote most likely go over the mountains heading east. I haven't heard an official yay or nay that trains would return through all the towns to Seattle. If you are correct, then it would surely give more to argue against the coal trains doubly affecting the quality of life for many.

I have a few more corrections. The trains go through Spokane, then to the Columbia Gorge and head north at Vancouver, pulled and pushed by 4 bigger, stronger, louder more polluting locomotives because mile-and-a half-long trains are heavy, which is why they can't go over the mountains. However. There are only 9 full trains per day on average that would be going to Cherry Point. The 9 empty trains are lighter and most likely would head east from Marysville to go over the mountains and not back through Seattle.
