Just remember you are on Private property when on the tracks and the right of way. They will and have prosecuted so tread lightly.

Railroad police officers in WA do make trespass cases. I've known them to cite fishermen walking across railroad trestle bridges. I don't know about on the columbia. They are state authority officers so a trespass case from them goes to the same court as a deputy or WDFW Officer.

They are over glorified security guards. They have no police power.


Actually private security on private property can do some things police can't do.

There is no greater respect to have for wildlife than to harvest an animal fairly and use it's flesh to feed your family.  ~me

Idk BNSF police have just as much power. I know they write tickets

Not true. They have full authority police officer powers in most states, including Washington.

On the WA side of the river I think it's BNSF on the OR side of the river I think it's UP. They both have the easements for their tracks and can cite for trespassing. I for one don't want to have to hire an atty to argue before a judge that I in my opinion crossing the rr tracks has been going on for many years and now I'm claiming a prescriptive easement across the tracks. My pockets are not that deep.
