Burlington Northern (BN) formed from the merger of four long-affiliated railways that shared James J. Hill and John Budd’s spirit of railroading as a great adventure. Still, the move required complex planning and implementation programs. Soon after “M-day,” the electric-power industry summoned BN to transport immense amounts of low-sulfur coal from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana across thousands of miles of BN rail lines. To cope with the unexpected but exiting demand, the company hired and trained thousands of workers to improve the railroad, increase its capacity with a much larger fleet of coal-hauling cars and locomotives, construct new lines, build new sidings, add miles of double track, and upgrade thousands of miles of existing track to meet higher standards. In just a few years, BN lines were handling the highest tonnages of any railroad lines in the world—past or present. Burlington Northern: A Great Adventure, 1970–1979, the first in a two-volume series, covers this important decade.
Earl J. Currie spent forty years in line management of operations and maintenance in the rail industry, including as BN’s Senior Vice President–Maintenance and Transportation.
