Burlington Northern's CW Branch

From "Northwest Railfan."

October 1991

Eastern Washington's CW Branch (Cheney-Coulee City 108 miles) is seeing more frequent operation recently due to the seasonal grain rush. BN's CW Local is an up-one-day-back-the-next job usually powered by 4-6 GPs/B30-7ABs. The branch is currently full of slow orders with new ties and surfacing required in many areas to get track speed up to 15-20 MPH. BN recently re-aligned and moved a switch at Reardon, WA following a late August derailment.
