There are hundreds of ways to experience Idaho’s incredible scenery up close and personal, but there’s something spectacularly All-American about the opportunity to see it from the perspective of a train, barrelling down the tracks. Sadly, Idaho’s last Pacific passenger line shut down in 2016, leaving railfans and explorers aching for something new.
Sometimes, Idahoans know how to get creative.

What do you think? I’d love to see Idaho’s abandoned tracks restored, but this might be a good way to explore Idaho’s oldest rails in style! If you have any more info about legal spots for rail-riding, drop a comment below.
