    Does anyone here have a list of Train Symbols for the Burlington Northern? Anything 70's, especially 80's or even early 1990's?

    The only information I could find was in my January 1972 Official Guide. There were many other trains no doubt. BN's listings in my '80s guides are thin, with no train listings whatsoever.

    Hoping by some accident I might be able to identify this eastward movement. I grabbed this photo at Columbia Falls, Montana. Mid-1980's. The time was getting close to when the agent got off duty, circa 430pm in the afternoon.

    Well, the appropriate brain cell finally awoke. Not sure why I did not think of it, but I know a retired BN dispatcher, who worked that territory and was active at the time of my picture. DUH.

    Anyhow, after contact, I received a quick response this was Intermodal Train #4. YAY!!!! Great to have the answer! :D:D:D
