Avoiding Airline Cutoff, a Milwaukee Road Twin Cities time freight speeds under the Chicago and North Western Bridge at Wauwatosa, WI. CNW Hotshot 484 Class H 3002 is chewing up the rails to Chicago’s Proviso Yard. Alert train dispatchers, aware of the competition between the two roads, keep juggling their time sheets to get the best of running times. “CNW might be ahead today, but wait ’til tomorrow”, so says the Milwaukee Road. Both roadnames are gone, but the rails remain. Now it’s CP RAIL vs. UNION PACIFIC, with diesel power instead of steam, and the rivalry is still there.
