The Northern Pacific Railway opened the Pacific Northwest and was .

The Northern Pacific Railway opened the Pacific Northwest and was created when President Abraham Lincoln. It was merged into BN in 1970. For all the Transcontinental Railroad's accolades, the NP carried its own great story. It undertook a similar endeavor to reach the Pacific Northwest but did so without the aid of federal loans. At first, it appeared the railroad would be built without difficulty as noted banker Jay Cooke secured several million dollars in financing. However, fortunes soon turned and the NP slipped into bankruptcy. As Northern Pacific languished it seemed unlikely the project would ever be finished.

JUST DO IT
thank you for the book

This is an easy to read book about the Great Northern Railway. The book covers the history of the railroad in great looking black and white photos. But if you wan't a lot of information on the railroad, this is not the book for you. The pages are very spaciuos with generally one or two photos on each page and a total of about 15 pages of text. With that in mind I can really recommend the book. It's a great way to spark an interest about the Great Northern Railway.
