Burlington Northern Santa Fe is a national railroad company owned, as of 2010, by Berkshire Hathaway. It owns and operates on many of the railroad tracks in the Portland area, including:

BNSF also owns the "Oregon Trunk" line, which runs through much of central Oregon. This line connects with the BN tracks in Washington east of The Dalles, crosses the Columbia River (and interchanges with the UP line on the Oregon side), then roughly parallel to U.S. Highway 97 through Madras, Redmond and Bend, joining the UPRR mainline near Chemult.
