2-8-0 with a streamliner

After unloading at Seattle Union Station, the Milwaukee Road’s Olympian Hiawatha was towed south behind steam, backward and with diesels still attached, to a wye, where the train was turned to head for its ultimate destination, Tacoma. Eastbound, the process was reversed. In this late-1940s scene, 2-8-0 No. 1225 does the honors.
