Coach America and Delta yard

This summer I took a job driving shuttle vans for Coach America. I drove train crews to and from trains, yards and terminals across western Washington.  A fun job, but long hours and a terrible schedule.  I usually worked the 1800 to 0600 night shift.  Nice because traffic wasn't too bad but it was very hard to adjust my body clock to working nights.  My home terminal was the BNSF Delta yard in Everett. I drove as far north as the Canadian border, as far south as the Oregon border and as far east as Wenatchee.
