Burlington Northern BN-3

There is something about the lines of these old diesels that are akin to the shape of the Coca Cola bottle; they are unique and one of a kind. They are icons of Americana, they warm the heart of this American and create a spirit of energy. How wonderful it would have been if passenger trains had remained as popular as Coca Cola. Our nation once had a transportation system that literally went to almost every town in the USA. Those were the days when travel was taken for granted, like the mailman, like the corner grocery. But time moves on.
