Interurban Railway turns 100

Over the weekend Lynnwood residents celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Interurban Railway. The electric trains that ran between Seattle and Everett from 1910 to 1939 were key to the development of Alderwood Manor, which later became Lynnwood.

People toured Interurban Car 55 at its permanent home in Heritage Park. It’s the only surviving car and has been renovated with original seats and accessories.

For a look back at this interesting piece of Lynnwood history, watch this Seattle Channel interview with Historian Alan Stein (starts at 5:48).
