In 1980, the C&NW began a serious expansion of their business train fleet, and F-units formerly in suburban service were reconditioned to pull the new business cars, which were purchased secondhand from a variety of sources. By the early 1990s, the F-units were stored, their paint fading, and the last run of the C&NW business train ran from Chicago to Bill, Wyoming, in 1995. For those few years, the business train represented the zenith of glory on the C&NW in the modern freight era, a glimpse of power and might on the North Western in its last days. This book documents that glory. All-color photos and roster. Reprint 2022.
