Eastbound and westbound trains

Traffic on the Burlington Northern & Spokane Portland Seattle
Name: Dave Condon
Railroad Name: Burlington Northern & Spokane Portland Seattle
Location: Kirkland, WA
Scale: O scale
Theme: Marshall Landing Washington
Description: Heading West to Portland is a heavy BN freight train made up of GP30s and a GP9. My layout has a Portland Cement operation built by Model Structures. The cement rail cars are moved to a subline by SIRR (Spokane International Railroad), an Alco RS1.

SIRR moves some of the SOO cars across the boarder into Canada and then uses CP to have the cars end up in the Great Lakes area.
Heading East to Spokane is a SPS consist of general freight. A couple of EMD F3 units are pulling the load on a secondary track.
What is displayed is what happens when an iPad is set down next to a track and the record button is pushed. It’s all for fun!
