The Colombia River serves as the border between Washington and Oregon east of Vancouver and Portland. Both the BNSF and UP run trains on either side of the river, with BNSF's Fallbridge subdivision on the Washington side, and UP's Portland subdivision on the Oregon side. I believe this area, focusing on either side of the river, would be an excellent route for TS 20XX. 1st proposal would be BNSF's Fallbridge Subdivision, and the route could cover the Appx 140 mile route between Vancouver Washington, to Roosevelt. The route would start in Vancouver, and run to the yard in Wishram, and extend as far east as Roosevelt. The route should also be made similar to the Montana Hi-Line, making the route available worldwide. Vancouver is home to the Port of Vancouver, and an Amtrak Station. The Amtrak Station is unique as it is situated in the middle of a wye, this station serves Amtrak's Cascades, Coast Starlight, and the Southern end of the Empire Builder towards Portland. The route then heads eastward, passing by the Georgia Pacific mill in Camas, before heading into the scenic Colombia River Gorge in the east. Passing by cliffs, running thru tunnels, past dams and over causeways along the northern bank of the river. Mt Hood can also be seen from the route as well. In Wishram, BNSF maintains a small yard, this is also where the Oregon Trunk subdivision heads south towards Klammath Falls Oregon crossing over the Columbia River and the UP tracks over the Oregon Trunk Bridge. East of Wishram, BNSF used to serve an Aluminum Plant at the John Day Dam, as well as the end of the Eastbound of Trash Trains in Roosevelt. One of the special trains for this route would be the containers used in the Trash Train, which runs east to Roosevelt, where it is unloaded and sent to the landfill. For locomotives, I think we should do something a little older, with GE's C44-9W's being the main power for the route, this would allow users to have access to BNSF Dash 9s who never had the chance before the licensing became an issue. The locomotives could come in H2,H1 and Warbonnet Colors. Other power that we could see would be similar to what we already have from other routes (Mainly SD40-2,GP38-2's and SW1500's) though it would be nice to see something new as well. Ill go over the Union Pacific side of the river at a later date.
