This 208 page pictorial covers the history of the Chicago Great Western during its later years in Minnesota. An in-depth study of this beloved Granger road, this book includes information and a wealth of photographs covering the road's mainline, branch lines, depots, terminals, iron mining operations and day to day struggle to survive.

The book also features a collection of never before published construction photographs of the Winona & Southwestern and the Winona Bridge Company. If you are a CGW fan, a student of railroading in Minnesota or one who naturally roots for the underdog, this book is a must!
