Review of The Funnel - BNSF Railways Spokane Subdivision DVD

 5 of 5 (4)
Since the days of the Burlington Northern, The Funnel has seen some of the heaviest rail traffic in the Northwest. Now part of the busy BNSF Northern Transcon, this 70 mile-long corridor between Spokane, Washington and Sandpoint, Idaho is still a railfan magnet.

7idea Productions paid several visits to this scenic line in different seasons. Our tour begins at Latah Junction where trains roll in and out of downtown Spokane. The tracks travel in a northeasterly direction into the Idaho panhandle before crossing the 5,000 foot Lake Pend Oreille Bridge and arriving at Sandpoint Junction. Unit grain trains, coal, intermodal, vehicle, manifests and the new Bakken oil trains all use this important route.

With over 50 trains per day on a line with several sections of single track, dispatchers and crews have to stay on their toes to keep things rolling. From clear summer days, to cold winter nights, this is great railroad action you don't want to miss!
