This post is about the C&NW's twelve "Northern" series Pullman built sleeping cars.
Wayner's "Car Names, Numbers, and Consists" states that those cars were built for the "Northwestern Limited" and the "Duluth-Superior Limited".
I started chasing passenger trains in the Twin Cities about 1958 and the overnight "Northwestern Limited" was gone, with the "Twin Cities 400" the only CNW train out of Minneapolis.
When did the last CNW sleeping car service end and what was the disposition of those cars? I assume that the CNW released them from the Pullman pool.

but I only show this many cars:
The missing cars are as follows:
Northern Pines became NdeM Lago Winnipeg
Northern States became NdeM Lago Michigan
Northern Wild Life became NdeM Lago Ontario
Northern Wonderland became NdeM Lago Tanganyka
Hope this helps complete your records
