forces bigger than all of us were and had been working quitely in the background. The "Big Sky Blue" paint scheme was revealed to us in 1967. And so as I graduated from high school, things were beginning to change here also! The old colors that so many knew for so many years were on the way out and the GN goat was now becoming streamlined! In three more years, things would change again with the coming of "the big merger"--- the Burlington Northern! It makes me wonder what Mister Hill would have thought! Would he have been pleased?!
