To keep things unclear, here are some notes I have on lettering drawings. 

 

A drawing from Mar 1943 labeled for CMO 21400-22414 has a revision in 1956 noting ‘Lettering Chicago and North Western and Route of the “400” Removed’.

 

A drawing from Aug 1944 labeled for CNW 81252-81450, 82452-82650, & 83652-84250 is for ‘The Overland Route’ lettering.

 

A drawing from Sept 1944 labeled for CNW 80252-81250 is for ‘Route of the Challengers’ lettering.

 

A drawing from Sept 1944 labeled for CNW 81452-82450 is for ‘Route of the Streamliners’ lettering.  Not a typo on the series.

 

A drawing from Sept 1944 labeled for CNW 82452-82650 is for ‘The Overland Route’ lettering.

 

A drawing from Feb 1947 labeled for CNW 81452-82650 has a revision in 1956 noting ‘Lettering Chicago and North Western and Route of the Streamliners Removed’.

 

A drawing from Jan 1956 labeled for CNW 82652-84250 has a revision in Dec 1956 noting ‘Lettering Chicago and North Western and The Overland Route Removed’.
