Pat Dorin has compiled another nice C&NW book, this one dealing with a general overview of the line's freight trains and cars over the years, with concentration from the 1930s to modern times. This book is rich with great illustrations showing steam and diesel locomotives, cars of all types, and information about how the trains were operated, as well as excellent train photos. The book should be ideal for any C&NW fan or modeler interested in this road or in freight trains and equipment in general.
