The Chicago & North
Western was well-known for its Chicago-Twin Cities 400 passenger train.
Encouraged by the success of the Twin Cities 400, the North Western
established an entire fleet of regional streamliners that brought people
from Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Wisconsin's North Woods, Upper
Michigan, and southern Minnesota into the big city of Chicago for a day
of shopping or business. The yellow-and-green 400 Fleet had a loyal
following of passengers not served by rivals Burlington Route and
Milwaukee Road. "Ride the 400," "Speed, Luxury and Safety," "400 Miles
in 400 Minutes" and "The Train that Set the Pace for the World" were
successful advertising slogans for business and vacation travelers.
Coverage includes the Twin Cities 400, Minnesota 400, Peninsula 400,
Flambeau 400, Kate Shelley 400, and commuter streamliners.
