Puget Sound & Pacific Railroad

Overview

An Open Letter to the Grays Harbor Community About Railroad Safety and Service
 

The Puget Sound & Pacific Railroad (PSAP) is headquartered in Elma, WA. The PSAP interchanges with the BNSF and UP Class I railroads. The PSAP runs through the rich forest lands of Washington State and serves major lumber customers with transportation services. Freight moves over 108 miles of track in Northwest Washington.

More than 30,000 carloads moved over the PSAP in 2010. The major commodities include lumber, automobiles, agricultural products, waste, food and kindred products, and chemicals for pulp and paper mills.

The PSAP provides an integral service to national account lumber companies moving their products to the Class I roads for further movement throughout North America.

Located on the PSAP is the Port of Grays Harbor, which is the only deep-draft shipping port on Washington’s coast, only two hours from open sea, and centrally located between the Seattle and Portland markets.  Unburdened by daily traffic jams of urban areas, companies gain efficient and cost-effective highway access via the four-lane highway from Interstate 5 or rail service provided by the PSAP, with connections to Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific.

A continuous rail loop throughout the marine terminal complex allows the free flow of cargo in and out of the facility.  The rail loop is designed to handle and store unit-trains as well as smaller sets of rail cars.
