Transportation Company - Sounder - Railroad



Company History: Sounder is the commuter rail division of Sound Transit serving the greater Seattle, Washington area. The agency was the result of a series of ballot measures passed in the 1990s. Initially, the agency was scandal plagued until a fixer in the form of Joni Earl was brought in to straighten out the mess. The Sounder line runs north out of King Street Station in downtown Seattle to Mukilteo, Edmonds and Everett. They also run south from King Street Station to Tukwila, Kent, Auburn, Sumner, Puyallup, Tacoma and Lakewood. Both routes are owned by BNSF. Eleven F59PHI’s were built for Sounder between November of 1999 and October of 2001. They also took delivery of three MP40PH-3C’s in 2013. The coach fleet was built by Bombardier. Of the 67 coaches, 27 are equipped with cabs for push-pull operation. Operation began in September of 2000.
