Welcome to Our Site!

Update 9/2/2020:  The October 2020 issue of The BN Expediter went into the mail on Wednesday, September 2nd, earlier than usual because of how long it took to get the April and July issues delivered by the post office.  Our hope is that you will receive this issue before October is over.

We exist to preserve the history and chronicle the operation of the Burlington Northern Railroad and its successors, as well as the MRL. For information on historical societies for railroads that merged to become the BN or BNSF, click here

On this website you will find all sorts of interesting, informative and useful information about the BN, BNSF and MRL such as locomotive and freight car lists, employee timetables, yard maps and much, much more.

Just pull down one of the menus at the top left of this page and take a gander at what we have to offer.

The information on this site is all free.  The cost of maintaining it comes out of the annual dues paid by members of our society plus other donations.

If you find this site useful, consider joining.  Members receive our quarterly publication, The BN Expediter, an all color magazine containing all sorts of information and stories about the railroads we cover.
