The development of Milwaukee Road's dedicated Chicago-Twin Cities piggyback service is described from its development under the aegis of FRA and AAR to the present unsubsidized operation which involves three departures in each direction almost every day on 11-hr schedules. Problems of operation, labor agreements, pricing, marketing and profitability are discussed along with a report of a typical westbound trip.
