[BN] BURLINGTON NORTHERN - FROM MERGER TO MERGER: A look back on the Burlington Northern from the 1970 merger to the 1995 BNSF merger through video, photos and slides.

After a short history introduction, the video starts out in Galesburg, Illinois and then moves up the Mississippi River to St. Paul. Some time is spent in the Twin Cities seeing the many sights and then onto the former GN line to Willmar and Breckenridge. The route to Superior & Duluth is next, followed by a trip to the Iron Range and then west to Grand Forks, North Dakota. Back to the Twin Cities, the former NP line to Fargo is viewed. In North Dakota, the former GN mainlines are followed first and then the former NP. In Montana the GN line is first and then the NP line, with a short side visit to Wyoming. In Washington, the former NP Pasco Yard is visited and the video concludes with a local freight working the Astoria Line in Oregon. The motive power ranges from F-7s, NW-5s, F-45s and high-hood GPs to SD-40-2s and SD-60Ms. Two of the three Bicentennial locomotives are included.

The video is 94 minutes long. $24.95 + free shipping (in the United States only)

[CB&Q Steam] CHICAGO, BURLINGTON & QUINCY STEAM POWER: The Burlington’s steam locomotive roster was much like its Midwest competitors with many Mikados and Northerns. The Santa Fe and Texas types were used for the coal traffic from southern Illinois. Many of its Pacifics were used in Chicago commuter operations and the Hudsons on long distance passenger trains. The railroad also had a handful of Mallets for Black Hills service in South Dakota.

Almost all of the 209 photos were scanned from original 2x4 medium-format negatives. The time period is mostly in 1950s and in locations such as the Chicago area, the Twin Cities; Lincoln, Nebraska; Cheyenne, Wyoming and Denver.

The presentation is like looking through a book on a computer. The CD-ROM works in PCs (WIN 2000/XP/Vista/7) & Macs and is self-starting. The images can be printed out. $19.95 + free shipping (in the United States only)
