The High Plains Route


The High Plains Route A History of the McCook Division of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad

First published in 1986, this is a greatly revised and updated edition of this popular book concerning the former McCook Division of the Burlington Railroad. Covering the years 1878 to 2009, The High Plains Route recounts the story of the original CB&Q (later BN and now BNSF) main line from Hastings, Neb., to Denver, Colo., as well as branch lines once operated under the division. It is profusely illustrated with 250 black and white photographs, many of them new to this edition. Chapter topics include passenger and freight traffic, motive power, railroad facilities and important events in the division's history. Updated material includes photos and information regarding former McCook Division territory through the BN and BNSF eras. Author Richard Kistler is a well-known Burlington Route historian with other credits that include his book on the Burlington's Wymore Division, The Wymore Story.
