Great Northern Pictorial - Volume Seven Hardcover, 168 pp. "This volume is a continuation of GN Pictorial Volume Six. Great Northern Pictorial Volume Seven covers GN freight train operations between 1966 and 1970, and the transition from GN to BN's early years of freight train operations. Emphasis is placed on faster schedules in response to increasing competition. These faster schedules were made possible through acquisition of more powerful locomotives and modernized, larger capacity cars. Overall change in products transported during this period is also covered."
