Bulletin # 71
n this 100-page issue, Louis Zadnichek has written another “I am a Burlington Man” tribute to the late Bill Greenwood, a BRHS Conductors Club member as well as an early member of the Zephyr Club. The tribute focuses on his CB&Q career which was the springboard for eventually becoming Burlington Northern’s Chief Operating Officer. The primary topic of this Bulletin issue is J. W. (Bill) Schultz’s treatise on the Burlington’s acquisition and use of 300 of the government’s ex-troop kitchen cars as baggage, mail, and express cars, affectionally known as “jeeps.” This article provides comprehensive coverage of these cars in their Burlington careers, up to, and including, the conversion of a handful to company service cars that made it through the Burlington Northern merger and concluding with one that is being preserved. A full roster of the 300 cars is included with a condensed roster of those that were destroyed, sold, or retired following the Burlington Northern merger

The second article by William A. Frankey, examines Galesburg, Illinois' first railroad depot designed by John M. Berrien, that served the CB&Q, the Central Military Tract, the Northern Cross, and the Peoria and Oquawka railroads. It also looks at other Berrien-designed dopts on the early CB&Q.

Many photos of early steam are included (including Grant-built narrow-gauge locomotives for the associated Burlington Lines), along with diagrams, drawings, maps showing the Cicero factory site, correspondence and advertising. As a bonus, two short biographies of the wealthiest women in the world in 1890 and CB&Q President, George B. Harris are included along with a few surprises.

Bulletin #68
Leo Phillipp has authored an interesting account of his and others’ experiences working on the East End for the Burlington and its “Northern” successor in the 68-page Burlington Bulletin 68. Working with a host of contributors including the Archives volunteers, there was a plethora of material to sort through and make the hard decisions of what to include and unfortunately omit. We hope this 68-page Bulletin will give you, the reader, an insight into the operations at the least recognized, yet very busy locations on the Burlington, Congress Park. The Bulletin begins with a brief overview of Congress Park and its history, then delves into the business of traffic and transfers at “The Park” and the “Park Job” AKA the “Congo.”
