Welcome to the Burlington System Division Website!

Welcome to the Website for the Burlington System Division! The Burlington System Division, also known as the "Q" or the "old Q", is part of the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes Division (BMWED), which is itself a Division of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) and a member of the IBT Rail Conference . Our nickname comes from the name of a former railroad which our System Division represented, the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy (CBQ) Railroad. While the CBQ is now gone, having merged into the current BNSF Railway, our System Division still proudly represents members working on 7 railroads and across 13 states in the Great Plains and Great Lakes regions of our country.
