Trains traveling Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry Idaho

Here is a great re-blog  on the Trains traveling Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry Idaho

North Idaho is a main funnel for trains coming from and heading to Canada. We have plenty and since moving here I have become facinated with them.  The shear power, strength of these brutes just amazes me.  Their beauty as they move through the different landscapes.  

Weather extremes only seems to enhance them.  Like a magnet one is drawn to them.  Or perhaps it is just me.  Most trains coming through are 100 cars or more.  Imagine!  

 

 

 

 

***************************************************************************

This short video (23 seconds) shows a train starting again after having waited on another to pass.  The domino type sound rushing from car to car as the couplings grab.  Keep in mind the engine for this train is up around to the left beyond the buildings.  The power and strength amazing!

 

 

These cars were empty thus the hollow sound.  The same effect when full only a very heavy thunk, thunk, thunk with no less speed.

Big R stores rebranded to North 40 Outfitters, same great store

I was surprised when I went to the local Big R farm and ranch supply to find a new sign reading North 40 Outfitters graced the front of the building.

Big R New name

 

At first I thought they had gone out of business but was happy to hear they just changed the name to eliminate online confusion with other Big R-branded companies across the U.S.

Bear  feed

Rest assured that while the name has changed the merchandise and friendly staff are still the same.
