The 400 Story
By Jim Scribbins  

 

400 Story

400 miles in 400 minutes . . . the fastest train on the American continent. Three Midwestern railroads introduced luxury passenger service in 1935, competing for Chicago–Twin Cities business and leisure travelers. Chicago & NorthWestern’s modern, sleek and fast rail line began with a conventional steam-powered train dubbed the “400” and named after its ambitious schedule: “400 miles in 400 minutes.” In 1939, it evolved into an even faster diesel-powered streamlined train, eventually expanding into a fleet of streamliners that served Wisconsin, Minnesota and upper Michigan. Softcover, 232 pages, 341 b&w photos, 18 color photos, 11 x 8 1/2".
