The Northern Pacific Railway (NP) operated in the Western USA along the Canadian border. By 1883 the main line ran all the way from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean, serving a large area including extensive trackage in the states of Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. Also, NP had international lines to Winnipeg, Manitoba and south eastern British Columbia, Canada. NP, together with the Great Northern RR, gained control of the CB&Q RR, thus access to Chicago, the central Middle West and Texas. Added was the SP&S RR, an important route through Washington State. The NP was among the first USA railroads to adopt widespread use of diesel power beginning with GM's “FTs” in 1944. In 1970, NP, GN, CB&Q and SP&S formed the Burlington Northern Railroad. At the turn of the 19th Century, during America's Industrial Revolution, Railroads refurbished many of their older cars for more modern use. Steel underframes, Bettendorf trucks, and newer brake systems were employed.
