The Canadian North Western
Railway or CaNW for short is a fictional railway, based in Ontario
and Michigan. Serving such industries as grain elevators, chemical
plants, automotive plants, lumber, and many other industries.
CaNW has exstensive trackage in Michigan and southwestern Ontario,
but has trackage rights with CN to move freight in the ST.Clair
tunnel. To stay competitive in the railroad market CaNW looked
for mergers and buyouts of smaller roads such as LOLX railway,
FD&O, GR&AA, JCLRY and a partnership with RXT railway.
New purchases of the Chatahm sub for CN allow a new route to Windsor/Detroit
and London. Midwestern has given us trackage rights throught Michigan
in excahnge for trackage rights to London ontario via Sarnia/Port
Huron. With the increase in traffic, CaNW has bought new SD70ACe
and SD70M-2 locomotives drom EMD.
