Access at Argo, like everywhere else in Seattle in those days was not a problem. You could darn near drive your vehicle up to the units – except at Interbay, where you could park right behind the round house.
It's a miserable cold and wet day when I located this unit awaiting assignment at Argo Yard. She needs a good bath!
