BTW, can you give me the discount summary of the CB&Q and whether it
formally interacted with the ATSF, the UP, and/or the SP. I have a
single P2K CB&Q F7A and a few "Burlington" cars that I am trying to
integreate into my layout plan if possible.
I don't really know specifically on all the info of the 'Q
interchanging with these railroads as my stuff is mostly packed away in
the basement yet from the move several years ago. Somewhere I have a
listing of all the interchanges between the CB&Q and various railroads
with locations, but again, it's all packed away.
I DO know that the Burlington interchanged with the ATSF and they also
had a lot of doings in conjunction with the UP. UP and Burlington even
had a pooled power freight train in the 1960's. Don't recall anything
off hand on interchange with the SP.
There is another Yahoo Group which is for the Burlington Route
HIstorical Society on Yahoo at:
You do not have to be a member of the Society to join and you may be
able to also find some info by searching the message archive and/or
checking out the Files section at the home page of the Group. Or you
can just ask 'em what you want to know! ;^)
Hope this helps. Sorry I don't more specifics off the top of my head.
