Pictures of the Chicago Great Western rolling stock are of the equipment painted in C&NW colors with CGW reporting marks. The Minneapolis & St. Louis, Des Moines and Central Iowa and Fort Dodge, Des Moines and the Southern rolling stock is mostly seen before C&NW paint. The rolling stock photos include many cabooses both wooden and steel in predecessor railroad paint. There are also many C&NW heavyweight passenger cars seen in this title.

The first in a two-part exploration of the myriad equipment of the Chicago & North Western and the companies it acquired in the 1950s and 60s.
