PASCO, WA - The 15 vintage train cars in Pasco Thursday are part of the Burlington Northern 2015 Employee Appreciation Special celebration.  

The cars are making their way through the Northwest on a three week excursion to 12 select communities with a history of business with BNSF. 

BNSF moves the celebration to different parts of the country each year, and it's been more than a decade since the event has made it back to the Northwest. 

350 employees, their family and friends will board the vintage cars Thursday evening for an hour long ride. 

Before that Pasco City officials will be part of a ceremony honoring Pasco with the first ever BNSF Community Heritage Award, and the Benton-Franklin chapter of the Red Cross will given a donation from the railroad company.
