Washington and Rail Deliver the Green for the Nation

Rich in white pine, Douglas fir, spruce, larch and the ponderosa pine, there’s a reason people call Washington the Evergreen State. A place of stunning variety—rain forests, glacial bays, volcanoes, grasslands and a fertile, semi-arid region adjacent to the majestic Cascade mountains—Washington produces a huge amount of lumber, wood, farm and food products making “green” freight rail a perfect partner for the state. Rail efficiently delivers Washington’s products for shipment to global ports, while refrigerated rail cars carry her jewel crop—apples—to the rest of the nation.
