Remarks & Notes 
CNW 621, nicely repainted in the current (at the time) yellow and green scheme shows itself off in the snow at Altoona, WI yard. A careful look reveals "CGW" sub-letters under the number, making identifying this caboose on train lists a bit of a challenge. It was common to leave prior owner lettering on equipment acquired through mergers, but gets confusing with the larger CNW initials above the number. The number is not the normal CNW numbering, which were usually 5 digit numbers starting with "1".
