C&NW F7 401
Title:  C&NW F7 401
Description:  Chicago & North Western Railway F7 401 in Chicago, Illinois on August 7, 1983, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This train was a steam fan trip powered by N&W 4-8-4 number 611. There may have been some concern about the 4-8-4's ability to negatiate the pictured curve. I presume the diesels powered the train to a convenient location where the 4-8-4 could be added. The following is from the August 1983 issue of Trains Magazine Running Extra section:

August 6-7, 1983; Streamliner Overland 400 - 20th Century Railroad Club steam powered excursion using N&W J-class No. 611 will operate from North Western Station in Chicago to Sterling,Ill. and return each day via C&NW. Open window coaches, air-conditioned coaches, recording cars, open-sided car, souvenir/snack car, and photo run-by. First class section includes dome lounge cars, Pullman lounge, complete dining service, and C&NW business car 400. Coach tickets: $60 each, First class $120.

C&NW F7 401
Title:  C&NW F7 401
Description:  Chicago & North Western Railway F7 401 in Chicago, Illinois on August 7, 1983, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. This was a steam excursion powered by N&W 4-8-4 611. However, for some reason, diesels were used, at least on this part of the trip. I have photos of 611 at this same location the day before. The August 1983 issue of Trains Magazine shows the following under the Running Extra section: August 6-7, 1983: "Streamliner Overland 400". 20th Century Railroad Club steam-powered excursion using N&W J-class No. 611 with operate from North Western Station in Chicago to Sterling, Ill., and return each day via C&NW.

Description:  Chicago and North Western Railway F7 400 and 401 at Janesville, Wisconsin on September 16, 1984, photo by Chuck Zeiler. Number 400 was built in October 1949 as C&NW F7 4084C (c/n 8573) on EMD Order E1188. During November 1960 it was regeared from the original 62:15 (65 mph) gear ratio to 57:20 (95 mph) gear ratio, and equipped with Cummins diesel generator set for 440VAC auxiliary power for Chicago suburban service. Between December 1971 and January 1972 it was renumbered to 415, remaining in suburban service until an unknown date. It was renumbered to 400 (2nd) during 1982 and became part of the Executive F fleet, retired in 1985 and replaced by 425. which was renumbered 400 (3rd). It appears it now resides on the WGN in Spooner, Wisconsin.

CNW F-Unit - CNW 401
Title:  CNW F-Unit - CNW 401
Description:  After once heading up the CNW Business Trains in the 80's and 90's, she's come to this. CNW 401 sits stored outside the shop. A couple sister units are couple hundred miles away pulling trains through the Royal Gorge, but the 401 sits dead for the time being. Hopefully they'll do something with it before she's too far gone.
