The title 'The Great Northern Empire - Then and Now' reflects the purpose of this website; to provide an easy guide to the Great Northern Railway and what parts of it still exist today. This against a backdrop of how things were in the days the Great Northern Railway operated as a separate railroad. The 'Now' part has been created here, although far from complete, but the 'Then' part is still missing. Since I don't want to break copyright laws to provide pictures from the past I need your help in providing these pictures. Please let me know if you can help. All material will be credited to the owner.

Check out the Mystery Pictures page to find out if you can help out with identifying possible GN subjects that I found in GN country.
Check out the Gone Missing page to see if you know where equipment has gone to from their last known location.
Specific information that I'm looking for:
Pictures of the shown structures and equipment from the Great Northern era; All material will be credited to the owner/photographer.
Information on cabooses, structures and all other related Great Northern items to complement or correct the information on these pages. Caboose information will be forwarded to Roger Kirkpatrick and Jack Porzig (GNRHS) to keep their lists up to date.
Disposition Information on GN diesel locomotives, the different paint schemes individual locomotives wore and their repaint dates to complement the information in the diesel rosters section.
The GN number for the caboose at the Havre RV park in Havre, MT.
