This 1909 photograph shows the train arriving in Blaine after crossing the U.S. border south from White Rock.

Imagine a stroll down to Seattle

Editor:

Wouldn’t it be nice to jump on a commuter train to watch a ball game at Seattle’s Safeco Field?

Wouldn’t it be nice to jump on a commuter train to watch a ball game at Seattle’s Safeco Field?

Wouldn’t be nice to take friends, family or a date down south to Pike’s Place Market, downtown Seattle for a nice dinner, the Seattle Art Museum, the Space Needle, or any of the other big-city places to visit?

Wouldn’t it be nice to catch a train in downtown Blaine at the old historic – maybe soon-to-be-remodelled – train station, and visit points south, as far down as San Diego and other points along the way? Well, we have a bit of a window now to make our opinions known to those in the positions of making it happen.

I believe it would have heavy Canadian usage. They could cross the border by foot or bike even.

Imagine jumping on the train and have a relaxing and enjoyable trip, without the hassles of dealing with traffic, weather etc.

Visit www.blainestation.com and make your voices heard.

The need is there and I believe it would be a win-win situation right on down the board.

If we don’t step up now, we may never have another chance. Please take just a few minutes to write a short note and visit the website.

You can make a difference.

Bill Becht, Blaine, Wash.
