Operating for 29 years, the Seattle-Everett Interurban Trolley traveled over 29 miles of rail carrying passengers and freight to nearly 30 stops along its line. In the first decade of the 1900s, the Boston electrical engineering firm of Stone and Webster had designs of building an interurban electric railway system that would eventually connect Olympia, Washington, and Vancouver, British Columbia. To start the Seattle north link, they purchased the existing Seattle-Everett Interurban Railway Company from Fred E. Sander in 1908. On the early morning of April 30, 1910, the Seattle-Everett Interurban Trolley made its inaugural run, starting in Everett. On February 20, 1939, the trolley left Everett for its last run.

About the Author:

Sister and brother authors Cheri Ryan and Kevin K. Stadler grew up in the community of Alderwood Manor, once an important stop on the interurban route. Both are members of the Alderwood Manor Heritage Association and have done extensive research of the area. Stadler coauthored the Images of America: Alderwood Manor book with Marie Little. Ryan has participated in three of the Museum of History and Industry’s Nearby History writing seminars. They have gathered images from a variety of sources; over half come from the estate of Walter V. Shannon, who was the last surviving motorman from the Seattle-Everett Interurban Railway.

Title: Book Watching

Author: John Wolcott

Publisher: Snohomish County Business Journal

Date: 5/1/2010
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.
