How True - How True

My hometown, Shawano, WI - the crossing point of the C&NW and the Soo, still has its own "400 Bar."  It was, and still is, a rowdy place.  Just down the street there was a railroad hotel that housed mostly train crews. 

BTW - The old "400" in the Ceder-Riverside in Minneapolis closed in 2013, but is re-opening in the Mall of America, very soon, as a live music venue and restaurant. 

John, I hate to break the news to you, but the bar's logo isn't the same as the CNW.  They're still selling the T-shirts at the mall until the club opens.

The poularity of the "400" term lasted well into the 1990s.  I went to a bar one night in downtown Minneapolis called "The 400 Club, and they even had t-shirts available with the popular steam-era emblem.  It was my first authentic steam-era t-shirt.
