Overview

        BNSF's Seligman Sub contains some of the hottest railroading anywhere in the world, (in the summer this is literal too). With upwards of 70 trains a day on this transcontinental main, there is never a lack of action.  The sub traverses almost the entire state of Arizona and passes through some of the greatest scenery the southwest has to offer. From high desert plateau to rugged mountain passes, this sub offers a wide variety of mainline railroading, in almost every scene imaginable. Winter snow and scorching summer heat is the norm with altitudes ranging between 456' to 7322' above seal level. This sub is a railfan's dream! .
        Using I-40, Rte 66, and various exits and side roads, you'll find that the Seligman sub offers great access, public vantage points, and breathtaking scenery all along the way.  The 4 largest cities along the sub: Needles, Kingman, Flagstaff and Winslow, provide access to food, lodging, gas, and supplies. You'll also find old Americana in these locations. These towns grew up along Rte 66, and the ex-Santa Fe mainline, when both were the main thoroughfares between Chicago and LA, and picked up multitudes of travelers from the heartland of America. So follow the links below for increased info, data, and maps on the Seligman sub. Weather info for the Seligman Sub can be found here.
