There are two of these, actually. About half an hour ago, Mayor Nickels’ train started at Westlake, and Mayor Jim Haggerton of Tukwila’s train started there. The two trains met at Mount Baker station for the opening ceremonies. We’ve got a short clip of Haggerton’s train headed across the Duwamish:

Edit: Apparently, it may be a few minutes before these videos are “processed”.
