UPDATE (May 21):

April 2020 Expediter Printer Errors

It has recently been brought to our attention that a few copies of The BN Expediter may have issues with the binding and page/photo layout. We have brought this to the attention of our printing supplier to ensure that we do not have similar problems with future issues. The printing supplier has agreed to provide extra copies of the April edition so that members can have them replaced at no additional cost.

If you would like to have your April issue replaced, or if you have any comments or questions about ordering back issues of The BN Expediter, please contact the FOBNR Store at store@fobnr.org.

Thank You

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.
