Coming Soon: New BNSF Automotive Facility Near Denver

In January 2014*, BNSF will open Big Lift, a new state-of-the-art automotive facility at BNSF’s Big Lift, CO station (located just south of Denver).

Designed to accommodate the growing demands of automotive shippers, this 57-acre facility offers more capacity, greater highway access, flexible switching and the option to expand to 92 acres, along with:

    • 12,000 feet of track.
    • 2,200 paved parking bays.
    • 61 unloading spots to reduce dwell time.
    • Third-party switching with the ability to provide second spots.
    • Easy access to growing population centers.

The Big Lift facility is located at 6996 W. Titan Rd., Littleton, CO, 80125, with easy access to Highway 85.
    BNSF will begin transitioning service from the Irondale facility to the new Big Lift facility as the opening date nears. We will send out additional communications with detailed information regarding phased service transition dates/schedules and a map of the facility.

    To help prepare your systems for the transition, please use the following codes:
      • The SPLC code is 746422.
      • The FSAC code is 57800.
      • The AAR Industry/Ramp code is CO014.

    If you have any questions, please contact your BNSF Marketing representative.

    Your business is important to us. Thank you for choosing BNSF Railway as your transportation service provider.

    *The recent flooding in Colorado required a revision of the facility’s original opening date. Barring additional weather-related interruptions, we are confident in a January opening.
