Preston Cook has done a magnificent job photographing the locomotives, passenger and freight trains that made the CNW such a beloved “prairie railroad.”
This book is divided up by divisions in the states in which the CNW operated during the 1970s.
Rare color photos of F unit elephant style lash ups pulling weekend freights, huge ALCo units hauling iron ore in the UP, E units pulling suburban Bi-Levels, and trusty switchers pulling local consists between yards.
This book covers all, including rail maps and historical information on the CNW. With over 200 photos, this book is ideal for model railroaders of the C&NW, and will make a great reference guide.
This used hardcover book is in very good condition.
