The Wymore Story is a classic account of Burlington Route Railroad operations in the southeast Nebraska region. Focusing on what was once the Wymore Division, headquartered at Wymore, Nebraska, it's a story of vintage steam locomotives, Zephyr passenger trains, and branch line motor cars.
Each operating subdivision is covered with details about passenger and freight traffic, motive power and facilities. However, this new edition also features a total revision of the text and layout. More historic photographs have been added, plus additional material which updates the story through both the Burlington Northern and BNSF eras.
