On March 17, 1995, The Union Pacific announced its intention of acquiring the remaining shares of the C&NW. The purchase was complete on April 24th, the last official day of the North Western. Then, on October 1, 1995, shippers including Metra commuters started making checks payable to “Union Pacific”.

See operations on the busy East-West mainline from Boone, IA to Elmhurst, IL during early April. And then see operations in October, across Iowa and Illinois from Fremont to Chicago. We’ll also visit the C&NW Geneva Subdivision in November 1995 at West Chicago, Glen Ellyn, and DeKalb.

See a wide variety of motive power from vintage GP-7s to brand new Dash-9s, as well as locals, yard operations, coal trains, grain trains, stack trains, and manifest trains. A bonus is the C&NW business train F-7s on their way west to Cheyenne, Wyoming. 2 DVD Set.
