The FOBNR Contact Corner

The Friends of the Burlington Northern Railroad welcomes questions about the FOBNR, The BN Expediter or your membership; the history and/or current operation of the Burlington Northern Railroad, the Montana Rail Link, or the BNSF Railway; or modeling the BN, MRL or BNSF. If pertinent to the question, please include a photo.

You may also send your question to our mailing address:

P. O. Box 271
West Bend, WI 53095

We cannot guarantee that we will have an answer immediately at hand, but we will try our best to find one or to refer you to a possible source. If your question appears to be of general interest, we will publish the question and the answer in an upcoming issue of The BN Expediter. If we are unable to answer the question we will publish it there too and solicit answers from our readers.

If published, we would use only your initials unless you give us permission to use your name. Questions may be edited for brevity and/or clarity.

When published in The BN Expediter, each question is given a code that is defined as follows:  The first two numbers show the Volume and Number of The BN Expediter in which the question appears. The third number shows the sequence of the question’s appearance in that issue. For example, 25.2.1 indicates the question appeared in Volume 25, Number 2 and was the 1st question in that issue.
