Riassunto: Burlington Northern Adventures relate the personal experiences of the author,William J. Brotherton, who went "railroading" as a brakeman, conductor and trainmaster for the Burlington Northern Railroad system, starting in 1979 in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Through his many interesting short stories, Brotherton illustrates what it was like to work for a major railroad company before branch lines, vintage diesel locomotives and cabooses were phased out. Brotherton, who hopped freights as a youth growing up in Atlanta, takes the reader along on his personal encounter with a railroaders' life in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Colorado. He ended his railroad career as a trainmaster with the Colorado & Southern Railway in Denver.
L'autore: William J. Brotherton grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and as a youth, hopped freights throughout Atlanta. After accepting a new position in Grand Forks, North Dakota in 1977, he went to work for the Burlington Northern Railroad as a brakeman when the company that brought him to North Dakota went out of business. Working off the railroad extra board, he chased work throughout North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado, and even worked as an oilfield roughneck and tractor-trailer driver when there were no railroad jobs. Today, he is an attorney in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, teaches environmental law at Texas Christian University, and proudly displays his railroad lantern in his law office. He is a graduate of the University of North Dakota and Texas Wesleyan University School of Law.
