Columbia Basin Railroad

The Columbia Basin Railroad is centrally located in the Columbia Basin region of Washington State. Interchanging with the BNSF in Connell, the line runs north crossing I-90 before reaching Moses Lake. Along the route, the Columbia Basin Railroad also services Warden, Bruce, Schrag and Othello. In total, the line consists of 86 track miles, 73 of it owned by Columbia Basin Railroad, the other 13 is on a long term lease from the BNSF.

Presently, the main commodities hauled on this line are agricultural goods, inbound fertilizer, chemicals, and processed potatoes and vegetables. Given the line’s strategic proximity to both I-90 and SR-17, its central location between Seattle, Spokane and the Tri-Cities, the availability of competitive power and industrial zoned land, the Columbia Basin Railroad is strongly positioned to handle significant growth.
