Additional Details:
The Burlington Lines of today had its inception in the tiny 12-mile Aurora Branch, chartered on February 12, 1849. From this modest beginning has emerged an 11,000 mile network of rails reaching into 14 Midwestern states. Burlington was first to operate a railway post office car; first to inaugurate a diesel streamlined train; and first to introduce a Vista-Dome car.
