Nicknamed the "Corn Belt Route" because of its operating area in the Midwestern United States, the railroad was sometimes called the "Lucky Strike Road", due to the similarity in design between the herald of the CGW and the logo used for Lucky Strike cigarettes.
In 1960 it reported 2474 million net ton-miles of revenue freight and 4 million passenger miles; at the end of that year it operated 1469 miles of road and 2117 miles of track. In 1968 it merged with the Chicago & North Western Railway (C&NW), which abandoned most of CGW's trackage.
