The July 2014 (16 pages) issue contains:

  • The Inside Story
    A reprinting of several articles from the International-Stanley Corporation that devoted an entire issue of its Spring/Summer 1971 company newsletter to matters pertaining to the BN. Included in this issue are: "BN-Merger Year Two", a recap of the merger process and the first year of operation of the BN, "Lou Menk...tall man in a tall job", "Bob Downing...third generation railroader", and John Budd...architect of merger", three biographical articles on BN's early top managers, and "At the Heart of Operations...", an article about the Twin-Cities region in 1971 and it's head, Wilburn Allen, including several color photos of rail action in the region in the early 70's. More articles from the newsletter will appear in future issues of The BN Expediter.

  • Modeling a Wreck
    A short article, with color photos, on how to model a GP28M that received major damage in a collision with some runaway tank cars.
