Chicago Central and Pacific (CC)

In the 1980s, ICG sold ICwest along with most of the other segments of ICG that were not on the mainline. ICwest was sold as the CC&P and operations commenced on December 24, 1985. In 1996, IC realized they made a mistake and bought it back. (IlliniRail) It is now the Iowa Zone of CN's Southern Region. (Wikipedia)

I like that their locomotive livery paid homage to the "green diamond" logo of the IC.
