"Terminus for the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train" Renton by grandmaR

Renton Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 10 photos

Renton was originally known as Black Ridge, and settled by Erasmus Smithers in 1856, the city of Renton was incorporated in 1901. What started as a coal-mining town is now the home to Boeing, Paccar, and the Spirit of Washington. Excavations have revealed settlements of Duwamish Indians dating back to 1790. The dinner train moved their terminal there in 1992

Near here is also the BOEING PLANT

The largest airplane manufacturer in the world, and is home to the 737s and 757s. The 737 is the best selling commercial airplane in history.
