The Chicago and Northwestern was often operating in severe cold throughout our Western Plains States.  A storied history of delivering goods to brave pioneer towns.  These models should make our Northwestern and Canadian Z hobbyists very happy, indeed!  The Chicago and North Western Transportation Company (CNW) was a Class 1 Railroad operating over 12,000 miles of track in seven states before retrenchment in the late 1970's.  Trackage in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming was divided between Union Pacific RR and CPRail (operated by Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern RR) in 1995. The Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railway (CMO) or Omaha Road became part of the CNW Railway in 1882.  The C&NW leased the Omaha Road in 1957 and merged the company into itself in 1972.

The Waddell Coal Co. came into being in the late 1800's when their breaker was built in Winton, near Scranton, located in Pennsylvania's northern anthracite coal region. Originally serviced by the New York, Ontario and Western Railway, which operated in Northern NJ, Upstate NY, and Northeastern PA, improvements were made in the early 1900's and coal from the local mines was washed, sorted, and distributed by the O&W, as was milk and dairy products, mainly to the New York City metropolitan area. With the advent of new roads, trucking, and the decline of home-heating coal, the O&W and hence the Waddell Breaker fell into disrepair. By the late 1930's while the O&W neared bankruptcy, the Waddell Coal Co. continued to clean and distribute coal to rural areas along the rail line. In the early 1950's the Company bought five of the O&W's small ribbed twin-bay hoppers, and had the shops paint them in a striking orange, black and white scheme, to advertise and distribute their coal to local merchants. Although fires destroyed parts of the Waddell Breaker complex over the next twenty years, coal continued to be processed there through the 1980's! Demolished in 2003, a housing development is now planned for the site.

The New York Central Railroad (NYC), headquartered in New York City, utilized extensive trackage in the US states of NY, PA, OH, MI, IA, IL, and MA, plus additional trackage in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The railroad primarily connected New York and Boston in the East with Chicago and St.Louis in the Midwest along with the all the large intermediate cities in between. The NYC's Grand Central Station Terminal in New York City is one of its best known extant landmarks. Much NYC trackage followed rivers or lake shorelines, and having no significant grades influenced it's advertising and locomotive designs. The famous Water Level Route of the NYC, from New York City to "Upstate" was the first four-track long-distance railroad in the world. 
In 1968 the NYC merged with its former rival, the Pennsylvania Railroad to form Penn Central (NYNH&H joined in 1969). That company soon went bankrupt, was taken over by the federal government merging into Conrail in 1976. Conrail was broken up in 1998, and portions of its system was transferred to both CSX and Norfolk Southern. Those companies' lines included the original New York Central main line, but outside that area it included lines that were never part of the New York Central system. CSX was able to take one of the most important main lines in the nation which runs from Buffalo, New York, to Chicago, Illinois, called the Chicago line. The Chicago double main line is one of only a couple US lines that connect the East and West coasts and runs over 200 trains a day with Toledo, Ohio, being the busiest crew change point on the entire CSX system.
