When the Chicago & North Western Railway inaugurated its speedy 400's in late 1934, it began carving a reputation that commands respect in the passenger railroad industry of the 1980s. What North Western wrought can still serve as a lesson in this age of Amtrak Superliners and French TGV trains. The 400's were everything today's trains strive to be.
Now there is a book big enough to tell this remarkable story. Jim Scribbins' THE 400 STORY recaptures the excitement of the 400 era, tracing the rise and fall of a passenger system that made Twin Cities 400  and kin household terms in the Upper Midwest. In a detailed narrative and more than 400 photos, Scribbins recalls the singular elements of THE 400 STORY. high-stepping Pacifics, yellow-and-green streamliners, resort-country trains and the revolutionary bilevel era.
