I myself have seen quite a bit of CNW rolling stock here in Easton. Mostly covered hoppers but i have seen a gondola lettered for them.

A good place to spot some old C&NW stock is at the UP (former SP) scrapping yard on the east side of Tucson.  Much can be seen from the perimeter road on the south side of the complex.  Now, I'm not advising anyone to trespass and go in there!

Another one they missed, heading west on CSX in August 2013.  Wonder if this was one C&NW had built, or that UP lettered for tax reasons:

Here's another C&NW boxcar on a westbound Penn Central freight.  Looks like it had some bad luck, but at least it's still rolling.  Roughly May, 1974.

March 2015, HLMX 43339 brings a little green and yellow to CSX coal.  I've noticed a number ex-CNW hoppers over the past few months.

The hoppers like these have been quite common on the UP's ex-Missouri Pacific line between St Louis and Kansas City for some time now. I've seen a number of green and yellow hoppers, many still in CNW lettering, then some ex-CNW relettered for some leasing firms, and even some bare metal (aluminum?) five-outlet hoppers. Ditto for covered hoppers, with some still in CNW livery and others, still painted green, but under "new management", so to speak.
