A former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad hopper car in transit. Chicago Illinois USA. August 2007.

A former Chicago & Northwestern Railroad coal hopper in transit. Chicago Illinois. August 2007.

I spotted this eastbound Union Pacific Railroad unit coal train entering the city of Chicago one hot summer afternoon in August of 2007. Coupled on to this train, were several old coal hopper cars that were still in the colors and markings of the pre 1998 fallen flag predecessor railroad Chicago & NorthWestern. It's nice to know that there are still some former pieces of Chicago & NorthWestern equipment still rolling around today.
