Letter to BNSF Regarding Shutdown of Car Ordering

Posted on 8/18/2005

North Dakota's farmers and shippers are demanding fairer treatment from the BNSF in their ability to order grain railcars. Recent actions by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway are causing great harm to the company's grain shipping customers, the farmers they serve, and North Dakota's economy in general. The North Dakota Wheat Commission and several other agricultural organizations as well as elected officials joined together in this letter to call on BNSF to reverse these actions.
