From the far northern regions of Illinois to East Chicago Indiana and everywhere in between, the reaches of CN’s massive steel network are immense. Comprised of former Wisconsin Central, Elgin, Joliet and Eastern, Illinois Central and Grand Trunk Western trackage, this multi-part series will feature all the various lines Canadian National uses to move tonnage from several corners of the system into Chicagoland. In Volume One, we will focus on the former Wisconsin Central Waukesha Subdivision from the Wisconsin/Illinois Stateline to the connection with the former Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Leithton Sub at Trafton. This production was 5 Years in the making, and viewers will see everything from the latest General Electric Deliveries with the “CN 100” livery, to several locomotives of CN’s Heritage Fleet, to the leased power era of CitiRail, CEFX and PRLX locomotives adding a splash of color to locomotive lashups. Add in the last of the BC Rail units, Canadian cowl GE’s, standard cab Dash 8’s and former Oakway SD60’s and you have plenty of motive power variety to behold. A few Metra moves on the North Central Service will also be featured which consist of their Amtrak-painted “California” F59PHI’s and we’ll also get a look at the Milwaukee Road heritage MP36 locomotive. All of CN’s Chicagoland Predecessor Lines come alive in the C. Vision Series “CN In & Around Chicagoland,” be sure to see what Volume One is all about!
