This book on C&NW passenger equipment is I a companion to Chicago 6' North Western Passenger Service-The Postwar Years, published by TLC in 2000, and is intended to review the equipment operated in the railroad's postwar services.
The C&NW operated a wide variety of passenger equipment to serve the traveling public from the mid-1940s until the advent of Amtrak. In fact, C&NW passenger services continued beyond Amtrak with the railroad's extensive commuter streamliner fleet, which in turn became part of the Metra system serving northern and western Chicagoland. The C&NW continued to operate the Metra commuter train services over its lines and the Union Pacific, the C&NW's corporate successor, has continued this arrangement to date.
The main purpose of the book is to illustrate the equipment and the color schemes used by the C&NW in the postwar era. These varied liveries included the early Pullman green, the Challenger scheme, the Union Pacific "Streamliner" scheme, the incredible "400," and the latter-day yellowand-green applications. What was interesting about the C&NW colors during the 1940s and '50s was the development of specialized designs for particular services. The "Streamliner" and "400" schemes-and even the Challenger until 1947-were dedicated to a particular service.
It is hoped that the equipment illustrated in this book will provide modelers and railroad enthusiasts with new ideas and at the same time bring back fond memories of travel on the Chicago & North Western.
