Constructed in the late 1800s, the Great Northern Railway was the only transcontinental railroad built using no federal money or land donations. Over the last 100 years, the Great Northern Railway has merged with other railroads bringing us to the present name, BNSF Railway.
The east-west corridor runs from Chicago to several ports in the Pacific Northwest. More than 38 million Americans rely on this artery to support their businesses including farmers, miners, manufacturing, energy production, and other commerce.
