Book Description:
Here is the detailed and fascinating history of how two legendary railroads the Santa Fe and the Burlington Northern (which itself was comprised four major railroads) merged in 1995 to create what remains one of America s rail icons, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF). A blockbuster railroad merits a history book of the same scale, and this book will awe railfans with its rich content.

Written by respected rail author and photographer Brian Solomon, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway features the full backgrounds of the four lines that made up the Burlington Northern (the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy; Great Northern; Northern Pacific; and the Spokane, Portland & Seattle), and a detailed history of BN s 25 years on the American rail scene. It also covers the Santa Fe's rich history in the Midwest, Texas, and the Southwest, and BNSF's first decade. Prized archival images and color photography from the mid twentieth century to today depicts the hardware, facilities, operations, and scenic backdrops associated with the BNSF and its predecessors. Also includes ten specially commissioned system maps of the BNSF and predecessor railroads, as well as three exclusive yard diagrams.
