Burlington Northern Offers Reward in Sabotage Cases: The railroad operator said it will pay up to $10,000 for tips leading to the arrest of people who sabotage railroad property or equipment. The move comes two months after the firm called in the FBI to investigate a freight train crash in St. Paul, Minn. In February, an 89-car train carrying cargo to Galesburg, Ill., struck six Canadian Pacific Railroad locomotives parked in St. Paul after the train's brakes failed. Fort Worth-based Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp. said it suspected sabotage in the accident, which injured nine people. The company's reward program seeks information about arson, theft, destruction or tampering involving railroad property.
