Acknowledgments

and to Ray Bedard who helped proofread this book.

Forward
I became interested in Burlington passenger cars when I saw the "BLACKHAWK" name on the letter board of Burlington's name trains. This train also had a great graphic sign on the last car with the "BLACKHAWK" Indian and his name. I have always felt the Indians were not always fairly dealt with by our government. This is why I like the fact that the Burlington Railroad chose to name one of their name passenger trains after him, and that is one of the reasons I wanted to model this train. I have also modeled the business car "BLACKHAWK" which is how I got into this book.
I have chosen to dedicate this book to "BLACKHAWK". I do not own any of the china that was used on this name train or business car as it has become very expensive. The dining car china has the "BLACKHAWK" Indian on the dinner plate and the water pitcher. The other name trains that also had china representing that train's name are "AKSARBEN" and "ARISTOCRAT".
This book starts out with business car 67 of which there were two (a first and second). See Roster for list of business cars, at the end of the Business Car section of this book.
I have only included photos that I had access to. You will find references to the Burlington Bulletins that have both photos and the history of each car. I am not a historian, so I left that up to Hol Wagner.
I have used the title "business car" as most diagrams used that reference. These cars were also referred to as "office cars". In a few instances I used the name on the diagram, which was "special car". I have laid out this book in numerical sequence to make it easy to find each car. Some cars had revisions over time which I have tried to show in dated sequence.
Most of my drawings were made from the CB&Q diagram book with the addition of details obtained from photos. Some of the CB&Q dia-grams were drawn just to show minimal detail. For example, some of the windows were drawn just as a rectangle. Therefore, I have tried to give more detail, and to show both sides and the roof which a modeler would need to make these cars.
