Editor's Note
  This is our second year and Burlington Northern's third; both appear to be meeting with success thus far. BN was recently chronicled in Fortune magazine as the only successful large-scale railroad merger of the past decade, and response to our first BN Annual has been extremely gratifying.
  This year our name has been changed to reflect a change in em-phasis of the publication. The words Motive Power have been dropped from the title, and, due to numerous requests, we have expanded coverage to other types of equipment, to wit, this year's feature article beginning on page 30 and the freight car featurette on page 17. Our primary emphasis, however, will continue to be placed on BN's ever-changing motive power fleet.
  Articles already in preparation for future issues include coverage of cabooses, business cars, rotary snowplows, iron ore operations and Chicago area commuter service. Feature locomotive models upcoming include GE's U23C U30C U33C line and EMD's SW1. Photographs and data for these articles will be welcomed.
  Again this year we owe a debt of thanks to the many individuals who have contributed the time, information and photographs which make the 1972 Annual possible. Foremost among these is BN's own public relations department, under the able direction of Al Rung. Others who have made their contribution include:
Gib Allbach, Keith and Kenneth Ardinger, Peter Arnold, Ted Benson, Larry Bischoff, Thomas F. Chenoweth, Dave G. Chornell, George R. Cockle, Bernard G. Corbin, Richard Crescitelli, Douglas E. Cummings, George H. Drury, Keith Enget, Ed A. Fulcomer, Mike Gelhaus, Bryan Griebenow, Frank and Paul Guernsey, Elmer K. Hall, Robert R. Harmen, A. T. Hennek, Robert H. Heuerman, Keith W. Hill, Ronald C. Hill, Jerrold F. Hilton, J. David Ingles, Clayton F. Jones, Edward L. Kanak, Timothy J. Kilroy, William S. Kuba, John H. Kuehl, Robert Lehman, Ronald E. Lutz, Mark Lynn, Laurence Mack, Bruce A. Notman, Vincent J. Porreca, Gerald J. Quinn, William A. Raia, Karl F. Rasmussen, Jerome A. Rosenfeld, Richard L. Schmeling, Harry Schimm, Don Schneider, Richard Steinbrenner, Thomas J. Strauss, Rod Stroud, Nick Thoralson, Garth L. Tyckoson, Richard Vartabedian, David P. Wag-ner, Richard R. Wallin, Fred Ziebe, Bruce D. Barrett, Tom Baukus, Carol L. Ingles and Larry G. Russell. For those interested in additional sources of information along the lines of that provided by this annual, we heartily recommend the following organizations and publications: Extra 2200 South The Locomotive Newsmagazine (Box 41417 Cincinnati, OH 45241), GN-NP Technical Society (1025 Third Ave. New York, NY 10021), SP&S Dope Bucket SP&S Technical Society (95 Smull Ave., West Caldwell, NJ 07006)
  Finally, in answer to numerous inquiries, Motive Power Services has begun preparation of a Union Pacific Motive Power Annual, but no date of publication has as yet been established.

Copyright 1971 by Motive Power Services
letter size, 80 pages, saddle stitch binding
Cover Painting
  Noted railroad artist Howard Fogg painted this scene for BN's 1970 Christmas card; it depicts three F45's on a hotshot freight high in the Montano Rockies. On the opposite page appear Howard's rough pencil sketch and preliminary water color, both of which feature SD45's rather than the F45's selected for the final version. The original painting now hangs in the BN general offices in St. Paul.

Editor's Note
  This is the first issue of what will hopefully become a yearly publication. For our inspiration, we at Motive Power Services are indebted to Joe Strapac and Chatham Publishing Company, whose Southern Pacific Motive Power Annual has been the sole publication of this type for the past five years.
  Depending on public reaction and response, future issues may be expanded to include facets of the BN other than just motive power. It interest warrants, features on passenger, freight and company service equipment will also be included, and more scale drawings can also be featured.
  The editor and the other partners in MPS are eternally grateful to the many people who have helped to bring this annual to fruition Our very special thanks to Albert M. Rung, Vice Presi-dent of Public Relations and Advertising for Burlington Northern, for all his cooperation and assistance and for allowing use of the cover painting by Howard Fogg. In addition, thanks are due Howard himself for letting us reproduce his pencil sketch and preliminary water color, something seldom seen in a publication of this sort. Without the assistance of devoted BN fans J. David Ingles and Richard R. Wallin, the information herein would be far from complete. And finally, our thanks to the many people who have so graciously provided the photographs which make this annual what it is: Roger Burrows, Tom H. Chenoweth, David Chornell, George R. Cockle, Bernard G Corbin, Richard Crescitelli, Doug Cummings, Ed A. Fulcomer, Frank W. Guernsey, Robert R. Harmen, Keith W. Hill, Ronald C. Hill, Jack M. Hoist, Clayton F. Jones, Edward L. Kanak, William S. Kuba, John H. Kuehl, W. W. Langford, Carl F. Nelson, Vince J. Porreca, William A. Raia, Larry G. Russell, Neil Shankweiler, Rod Stroud, John E. Tudek, Garth L. Tyckoson, Richard Vartabedian, David P. Wagner and James W. Zwernemann. Again, thanks.
