Books: Chicago & North Western Peninsula Division, 1940-1996: Volume One
Hardcover - 160 pages - Four Ways West Publications
Chicago & North Western Peninsula Division from Four Ways West combines a carefully researched history of the railroad's facilities, equipment, and operations. The Peninsula Division was built to haul iron ore. For over one hundred and twenty years CNW hauled iron ore from the Marquette and Menominee Iron Ranges to the docks at Escanaba, Michigan for transloading into ore boats. The railroad quickly expanded its service to haul every conceivable commodity as agriculture and industry developed in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the northeast corner of Wisconsin. Detailed photo captions explain the operation of the railroad from Green Bay through Escanaba to Ishpeming, and from Powers through Iron Mountain to Watersmeet, with a special focus on the Escanaba ore docks, industries and mines served in on-line communities, and the operation of passenger trains. With over 300 black and white and color photographs of trains, stations, and servicing facilities Chicago & North Western Peninsula Division is a book that every CNW modeler and enthusiast will love! Hardcover, 160 Pages.
