NOTE: We have recently learned that Jeff Ainsworth, author and owner of Monte Vista Publishing, passed away on October 16, 2023. For months, we have been unable to obtain Monte Vista books, but now find that his relatives have acquired Monte Vista's inventory making books available to dealers  once again. There will be no new Monte Vista books, but we will continue to sell previous volumes as long as supplies last. We have learned that Pacific Electric volumes 9 and 10 are now available. We will put them up on our web site when received.

EAST TO SPOKANE: BNSF'S LAKESIDE SUBDIVISION

Widescreen: $25.95 USD
Blu-ray: $25.95 USD

Every day, thousands of steel wheels roll over hundreds of miles of welded rail in eastern Washington State, carrying raw materials and goods bound for distant destinations. BNSF's Northern Transcon passes golden fields of wheat, grass hay, and other crops found in the rolling hills between Pasco and Spokane. Stretching nearly 150 miles across The Evergreen State, the Lakeside Subdivision sees over 50 trains per day and traffic continues to increase.

Our tour begins at the busy hump yard in Pasco where rail cars from all over the nation are classified. Then we turn east, as trains roll past acres of rich farmland dotted with small towns and big grain elevators. Trains put on a great show climbing Providence Hill and rolling through Marshall Canyon in the snow.  The Lakeside Sub sees unit coal, grain, and oil trains as well as mixed manifests and intermodal trains running between Portland, Oregon and Chicago. Amtrak’s Empire Builder makes several appearances too.

If you like modern day mainline railroading, then come along with us as we travel "East to Spokane” on BNSF's Lakeside Sub!
