Seattle Gas Light Company (1906-1956) left behind some of Seattle’s most visible ruins: The rusty, hulking, industrial skeleton in Gas Works Park are beloved for their steampunk eeriness – see previous blog entry, Gassed.


But also impressive are the concrete train trestles that still stand near the northeast entrance of the park, where coal cars once rode up and deposited quarry into Northern Pacific Railway trains waiting below. They may be a ghost train of the past but, just like the former gas plant, these, too, have taken on the appearance of looking like an art installation through the years.
