The origins, operations and dissolution of the modern Fox River Valley Railroad were closely tied to its relationship with the Chicago & North Western Railway. The two roads were closely entwined, ranging from the physical property to a majority of the rolling stock, and culminating with FRVR's ultimate absorption by and contribution to a railroad system conceived and run by a former North Western executive. That railroad would be the spin-off of the Wisconsin Central by the Soo Line.
Ranging from the immediate predecessor of all its lines, or the complex planning exercises used to market the property, this book revolves as much around C&NW's fortunes and business plan during the 1980s and 1990s as it does the Fox River Valley.
