Tickets Snapped Up For Free Train Ride

Free train ride tickets across the Rathdrum Prairie on June 22 were grabbed up in 20 minutes this morning as a line of people showed up to get in on the fun. Tickets for the rides were handed out on a first-come basis starting at 10 a.m. at the Idaho State Police office at 615 W. Wilbur Ave. in Coeur d’Alene. People were knocking on the door before the office even opened, a staff member reported. Three trips with departures at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon are planned along tracks near Greensferry Road between Hayden and Prairie avenues, north of Post Falls/Spokesman-Review. More here.

Question: I’ve ridden a train from Whitefish, Mont., to central California and back — at Christmas. Can you beat that?
