THE NORTH WESTERN. A HISTORY OF THE CHICAGO & NORTH WESTERN RAILWAY SYSTEM
The saga of the North Western began in 1848, when the Galena & Chicago Union Railroad ran the first trains west from Chicago. As the population grew and economic development pushed westward, the North Western stretched sprawling lines across nine states. By the turn of the century, North Western has expanded into a 9000 mile system and implementing its credo, "Best of Everything", the carrier often set standards for the rest of the industry.
