Central Washington Railroad

The Central Washington Railroad consists of approximately 80 miles of track located in the Yakima Valley. The CWA serves the communities of Yakima, Union Gap, Moxee, Granger, Sunnyside, Grandview and Prosser.

There are a wide variety of commodities handled on this rail line. Examples of these commodities are cattle feed, propane, paper products, plastic pellets, cheese, juice concentrate, lumber, apples and other agricultural goods. The line's central location in Washington State and its proximity to Interstate 82 makes it a highly desirable location for companies to locate and are relatively close to major metropolitan areas such as Seattle, Portland and Spokane.
