Chicago & North Western Railway
By the time it was merged into the Union Pacific in 1995, the Chicago & North Western was one of the nations oldest surviving railroads, a testament to the Midwestern stoicism with which it had gone about its business since 1859. This illustrated history chronicles how C&NW emerged from a collection of regional carriers to become a strategic link between eastern railroads and the West.

Review: Chicago & North Western RailwayUser Review - Katherine - Goodreads
Wonderfully illustrated with photos, maps, and brochures, but the text is kind of dry and quotes a little too much from other histories of the C&NW. I also wish it had a bit more about passenger trains (the famous 400 series streamliners). Read full review
