More Info on This Book: Seattle-Everett Interurban Railway

Arcadia Publishing, known for its local historical books and community profiles, has published a new addition to its ‘Images of Rails' series through local authors Cheri Ryan and Kevin Sadler — the Seattle-Everett Interurban Railway.

Operating for 29 years, the Interurban trolleys traveled over 29 miles of rail carrying passengers and freight to nearly 30 stops along its line.

On the morning of Apr. 30, 1910, the Seattle-Everett Interurban Trolley made its inaugural run, starting in Everett. On Feb. 20, 1939, the trolley left Everett for its last run.

Now Alderwood Manor native Cheri Ryan, President of the Alderwood Manor Heritage Association, and Kevin Sadler, another Alderwood Manor native who is past president of the association, have teamed up to tell the Interurban line's story in contemporary photos, more than half of them from the estate of Walter Shannon, the last surviving motorman on the railway. One of the six original Niles trolley cars has been restored and is on permanent display at Lynnwood's Heritage Park.

The authors will be signing books at the Alderwood Manor Heritage Association Sunday, May 2. The fascinating historical story is available at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers or through Arcadia Publishing at www.arcadiapublishing.com for $21.99.
