On March 17, 1995, The Union Pacific announced it's intention of acquiring the remaining shares of the C&NW. The purchase was complete on April 24th, the last official day of the North Western. See operations on the busy East-West mainline from Boone, IA to Elmhurst, IL during early April. Then, on October 1, 1995, shippers including Metra commuters started making checks payable to "Union Pacific". See operations in October, across Iowa and Illinois from Fremont to Chicago. BONUS: November footage of the C&NW Geneva Subdivision from November 1995 at West Chicago, Glen Ellyn, and train BUMAA passing westbound under the coaling tower in DeKalb, with three CNW locomotives! See a wide variety of motive power from vintage GP-7s to brand new Dash-9s, as well as locals, yard operations, coal trains, grain trains, stack trains, and manifest trains. Also witness the C&NW business train F-7s, on their way west to Cheyenne, WY. Enjoy watching this farewell salute to the C&NW after 147 years of service on this two disc DVD set, in full stereo sound!
