Two men who died Monday when a train derailed near Tacoma have been identified.
They were both passionate transit advocates from Washington state who were celebrating Amtrak’s new route.
Zack Willhoite, 35, loved to collect memorabilia related to trains and buses, from the large to the small.
Willhoite, an information technology specialist with Pierce Transit in Tacoma, was passionate about driving alternatives.
Perhaps the most striking item in his collection was a full-size, operational city bus that he bought.
