Since the days of the Burlington Northern, The Funnel has seen some of the heaviest rail traffic in the Northwest. Now part of the busy BNSF Northern Transcon, this 70 mile-long corridor between Spokane, Washington and Sandpoint, Idaho is still a railfan magnet.

7idea Productions paid several visits to this scenic line in different seasons. Our tour begins at Latah Junction where trains roll in and out of downtown Spokane. The tracks travel in a northeasterly direction into the Idaho panhandle before crossing the 5,000 foot Lake Pend Oreille Bridge and arriving at Sandpoint Junction. Unit grain trains, coal, intermodal, vehicle, manifests and the new Bakken oil trains all use this important route.

With over 50 trains per day on a line with several sections of single track, dispatchers and crews have to stay on their toes to keep things rolling. From clear summer days, to cold winter nights, this is great railroad action you don't want to miss!

Shot in stunning hi-definition between 2009 and 2013.

Fantastic another Awesome DVD from 7 Idea, as with everything 7 Idea produces this one is another excellent photographed and narrated DVD, graphics and maps are nice and informative and do a nice job showing how the "Funnel's" track layout works. Everything BNSF runs is seen along with a number of pool and run through power. Photographed in all four seasons trains are seen from sunny days to blizzard conditions. This is another Must Have DVD from 7 Idea. I Recommend this one you wont be disappointed.

This Blu-Ray production moves east from Spokane to Sandpoint, filmed in contrasting seasons, which is a very pleasant 7Idea technique which adds a lot of interest. The traffic and characteristics of the line are well explained and the feature attraction are the amazing angle shots of the long bridge over Lake Pend Oreille. A most enjoyable production.

This Blu-Ray was a Christmas gift to myself. And it was the best present I received this year. Again, 7idea crafts the perfect train video. It covered all the interesting places that needed to be covered, and it was done in all 4 seasons (not just summer). There was added coverage of the parallel Union Pacific line. Never saw or heard any mention of that line before. That was just one thing I learned, along with many other things, about the Funnel from this video. 7idea, this is a brilliant Blu-Ray you crafted, and I will recommend it to everyone who enjoys modern railroading.
