Take an in-depth look at the Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad in NW Wisconsin. This footage was shot just prior to the UP taking over the C&NW. Starting in Altoona, you’ll see the rail system covered north to Superior, West to Hudson, and East to Adams, 327 miles in all. This show features beautiful Wisconsin scenery, towns, depots and history. See over 20 different models of working locomotives from EMD, GE, and Alco, including 14 on the C&NW roster. The DVD information includes a 1995 CNW Roster and a map of the area covered.
The action includes yard switching, locals, mainline freights, unit trains, a diesel and caboose pace scene and a cab ride on a local using C&NW SD18 #6622. You’ll also see connecting railroads of Wisconsin Central, Green Bay & Western, and the Duluth Winnipeg & Pacific.
