Dr. John Strauss, Jr. Ph.D. author of several historical books on
the Great Northern Railroad, has graciously donated this work to the Friends of the
Burlington Northern Railroad. The October 2001 issue of The BN Expediter carries Chapter 6
of this work to give you an idea of the quality of work and detailed technical information
about the operation of the BN in 1971. Now you can get the whole thing - all 100+
pages for just $18 plus shipping. This Soft-cover book is printed on high quality glossy
paper, just like The BN Expediter, to be a durable, long lasting addition to your BN
reference shelf. It contains no photos (except on the cover).
Read Chapter 6 as a sample of this work.
