Well historically this was the Chicago & Northwestern Main line so there were passenger trains for him at some point. Plus a lot of these crews also count their time in freight service towards their number as well. It is why when someone retires from our HUN Base we see the Amtrak Logo, CSX usually, and whatever predecessor they worked for as well.

Presumably, he might have worked on any of the historic C&NW lines to Kenosha, Harvard, or Geneva; though it seems clear that his passengers know him from UP/CNW West going back many years. So that's likely the run he's been pulling on seniority for some time.
