Burlington Northern Adventures relates the personal experiences of the author, William J. Brotherton, who went railroading as a brakeman, conductor and trainmaster for the Burlington Northern Railroad system during the 1979-1982 period. Through his many interesting short stories, Brotherton illustrates what it was like to work for a major railroad company before branch lines, vintage diesel locomotives and cabooses were phased out. His accounts show what has changed within the railroad industry since then -- and what has not. Brotherton, who grew up around trains in Georgia, takes the reader along on his personal encounter with a railroader's life in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Colorado.
