Great Northern Railway train No. 358, the International, leaves Seattle behind a pair of EMD F3 units in the late 1950s.
"Drumhead" logos such as these often adorned the ends of observation cars on the International and International Limited.

The International was a named passenger train originally operated by the Great Northern Railway between Seattle, Washington, and Vancouver, British Columbia. This route began in 1950 as the International Limited, and was restored in 1995 using a Talgo Pendular train set purchased by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) as Amtrak's Mount Baker International service and is still in operation as part of its Amtrak Cascades train. The train makes stops in Seattle, Edmonds, Mount Vernon and Bellingham, Washington, before crossing the international boundary for Vancouver, British Columbia.
