Cost Basis Information

BNSF Railway has a tall and broad family tree, the result of combining nearly 400 railroads over the course of 160 years.

We apply the same resourcefulness used to run one of the world's largest railways to the task of determining the original value of investments that have become shares in Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation.

If you were an owner of former Santa Fe Pacific or former Burlington Northern shares, please reference the applicable document below for cost basis/history information.
