What are some railroad companies you miss the most?

Me I miss the Southern Pacific Transportation Railway and the Burlington Northern Railroad.

I do admit I was never a big fan of the Santa Fe Railroad and was not happy with Santa Fe merging with the Burlington Northern to form the BNSF Railway.

    My father worked for the Great Northern Railway. I miss seeing the cars and locos painted Big Sky Blue, which they used for only three years right before the merger. I also remember seeing some Northern Pacific cars as a kid.

    CB&Q (Chicago, Burlington and Quincy) was the original railroad, later known as the Burlington Route. Burlington Northern was formed from a merger of the CB&Q, Northern Pacific and Great Northern railways.

    I miss the Burlington Zephyr engines.
