Burlington Northern Railroad Cabooses

1970-1995

By Robert C. Del Grosso.

Color laminated hardcover, 8.5x11, 120 pages, 100 lb. stock, 290 color photos.

"This detailed pictorial history book illustrates all cabooses owned by the Burlington Northern Railroad over its 25-year history.

"Included are those acquired upon merger with the GN, SP&S, NP and CB&Q in March 1970, C&S and FW&D in 1980, the SLSF (Frisco) in 1981, and newly acquired. The 290 color photos include new and pre-merger paint schemes renumbered into the BN number system. Reviewed is the BN caboose rebuild program of 1990-1991 and 30 cabooses rebuilt into gray bunkhouse Univans for MofW operations. Cabooses are listed in numerical order by group, photo examples, and BN line drawing diagram sheets showing dimensions and specifications.

"This book is perfect for both BN and pre-merger historians and modeler."
