Was up to Kalama a couple of weeks ago. Lots of track and signal work being done. It looks like they are adding a fourth mainline. I emailed BNSF and got a generic non-reply from them. Anyone have deeper knowledge about what's going on there? Would appreciate any additional info you can pass along. Thanks!

Pete's Sake is keeping us updated recently. I was down there last year and did a complete photo journal of all of the new crossovers and sidings installed from Nisqually to Camas. I plan on going down again this year in a month or two to update, in pictures, what everyone who rides the rails sees now a days. Look at pages 10 - 14 of the thread Bill mentioned in Maintenance Away BNSF track projects WA state.
