Pictures of the Chicago Great Western rolling stock are of the equipment painted in C&,NW colors with CGW reporting marks. The Minneapolis &, St. Louis, Des Moines and Central Iowa and Fort Dodge, Des Moines and Southern rolling stock is mostly seen before C&,NW paint. The rolling stock photos include many cabooses both wooden and steel in predecessor railroad paint. There are also many C&,NW heavyweight passenger cars seen in this title.
