      An aerial view from the late s looks west along Chicago & North Western’s Chicago–Clinton, Iowa, main line. Among the features visible are (from bottom) Milwaukee Road’s Tower A-2 and Western Avenue station, C&NW’s South Yard (inside the wye, for freight), and C&NW’s California Avenue Yard (passenger cars). QUOTE: Originally posted by cnw About the CNW, I remember hearing that it was because of the location of stations within the current City of Chicago limits. The stations were on the north side of the tracks and when the second track was installed in the railroad didn't want passengers waiting outside for their trains in the morning.

      Passenger Train Service. The CNW's most famous train, the Twin Cities from Chicago to Minneapolis/St. Paul, was introduced in to compete with the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy's Zephyrs and the Milwaukee Road's Hiawathas. This train was named because it traveled the mi ( km) between the cities in minutes. Since , TTX has been a unique and creative provider to the rail industry. Throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, the signature yellow cars of TTX Company move along North America's railroads carrying goods and raw materials that consumers and companies rely on.

      The Chicago Great Western right-of-way was quite duplicitous for the Chicago & Northwestern, as it passed through the very active UP-West line, which traces it's origin to the CNW as well. That the trail passes over this line, it makes for some great railfanning opportunities, and is partly why I love rail . Chicago & North Western Modeler. 1, likes 1 talking about this.
