Another BNSF Business Train Rolls Through Sandpoint, Idaho

BNSF clearly sees the benefit of daytime passenger trains to and from Glacier National Park. Several times this year they have transported executives or customers along what many consider to be the most beautiful section of railroad in the United States. It is the hope of many that Amtrak may someday provide daytime service to Glacier Park so that more rail passengers can enjoy the stunning scenery. Currently Amtrak’s Empire Builder navigates this section during the night.

Below are two videos of a 6-car BNSF business train that rolled through Sandpoint, Idaho on September 3, 2010. The first video (59 seconds) was taken at West Algoma just south of Sandpoint and the second (36 seconds) was taken at Colburn a little north of Sandpoint. BNSF business cars include: Glorieta Pass, Marias Pass, Missouri River, Stevens Pass, Mountain View and Gerald Grinstein. There are two GE ES44DC locomotives (BNSF 7437 & BNSF 7487) on the head of this train.
