This is a shot from the bridge over the Box Canyon Dam of the Pend Oreille River. The Lions Club train ride goes between Ione and Metaline Falls, WA. This twenty mile round trip ride follows the Pend Oreille River. This ride not only crosses the river high above Box Canyon Dam but goes through several tunnels included Vail Tunnel which is 810 feet long. The train consists of a diesel engine pulling seven cars consisting of three coach cars, three open cars, and a BN caboose. We road in the caboose where we could be inside but step out on the open platform at either end to take pictures.
