Surprise power on the Amtrak Cascades

The classic BNSF geeps pulling Amtrak Cascades train 517 caught us by surprise. Apparently the P42 broke down earlier in the day at Mount Vernon, WA, while running as train 510 and the BNSF power was grabbed from a nearby local so the train could continue to Canada. The same power pulled the train back to Seattle that evening but was replaced by F59 467 the next day
