The Chicago & North Western 400 Series Trains were named for the concept of a “400 mile trip in 400 minutes, ” with one of the most well-known examples being the Twin Cities 400 between Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul. Beginning with the Flambeau 400 and the Peninsula 400 trains in 1958, the C&NW began utilizing Pullman’s then-new gallery Bi-Level cars on these mid-distance trains. At the time, these two 400 trains were the only place these new cars were being used, utilizing the car’s unique designs to provide higher rider capacity without sacrificing comfort and superior elevated-viewing positions for those riders lucky enough to be on the upper level. In addition to the standard Bi-level coaches, these two 400 trains also included a special Bi-Level Parlor Car and a Coach-Buffet Car to distinguish their service level from regular Chicago & North Western commuter trains and meet the rider’s needs on the longer distance trips, providing additional comforts and snack services that were key to making every one of those 400 minutes as pleasing as possible.
