The Spokane Pacific Lines is a take-off on the Spokane Pacific Line and they were still in business well into the '80s. The CF green Freightliner and the CF Ford C tractor as well as all of the CF trailers except one hidden are stock Athearn. The SPL trailer decals were are all made by Keith or from Ken Goudy. The rest of the decals are from various sets of A-Line and Microscale decals.

The tractors are generally from Promotex and Athearn. The Ford F-250 service truck is from Trident. The flatbed load is from Smokey Valley. Some of the accessories like the air compressors and fire extinguishers are from Greenway Products.The SPL provides TL, LTL, van, refrigerated and flat as well as special purpose service. Their terminals are in Spokane, Portland, Seattle and Missoula and they interline with CF.
