Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific trains used Chicago Union Station.

Amtrak replaced Nos. 5 and 6 with Burlington Northern’s Empire Builder.

No. 9 was the former Copper Country Limited. No. 24 was formerly The Traveler.

Amtrak picked up the operation of Nos. 12 and 23 between Chicago and Milwaukee only. The Milwaukee-Watertown segment was deemed to be a commuter train operation that the CMStP&P continued to operate through July 31, 1972, after which the trains were discontinued. No. 23 was formerly The Traveler. These trains did not operate between Milwaukee and Watertown on weekends and were unofficially named the “Milwaukee Express.”

No. 27 did not operate on Sunday. It and No. 46 were unofficially known as the “Milwaukee Express.”

Nos. 103 and 104 were widely although unofficially known as the “City of Everywhere” because they convened through cars for Union Pacific’s City of Francisco, City of Los Angeles-Challenger, City of Denver and City of Portland.

Nos. 117 and 118 operated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.
