Top: “Milwaukee Road’s Morning Hiawatha has just left Chicago Union Station on a northerly course, but now has completed a sharp westerly turn to cross under the C&NW tracks heading into North Western Station, and over Clinton Street, about halfway between Fulton and Kinzie.”

Bottom: “The Morning Hiawatha is now headed west towards Minneapolis, but not on exclusively Milwaukee Road rails. These are the joint tracks of the PRR and the Milwaukee. The position light signal, the head of which is showing above that last car, and another one, the back of which is beyond the Milwaukee Avenue viaduct, signify the PRR’s part-ownership.”

On a cold night in February 1969, the Milwaukee Road Skytop lounge cars for both Morning and Afternoon Hiawathas, were caught at the Minneapolis coach yard. Four photographers from Illinois were able to get this shot.

(via Milwaukee Road #261 at Speed )

Six class Otto Kuhler-styled F7 hudsons numbered 100-105 were delivered to the Milwaukee Road in 1938. The original A’s and older consists were released for service on other sections. The F7s were assigned routes between Chicago and Minneapolis. They were scheduled to cover a portion of this route at 81 mph – the world’s fastest regularly scheduled steam-powered train. They often exceeded 100 mph on this route.

Milwaukee Hiawatha at Rondout, Illinois

Here we see train #15, “The Olympian Hiawatha” slamming over the EJ&E diamonds on the way to Milwaukee and eventually the west coast. Picture was taken from the Chicago, North Shore & Milwaukee electrified tracks, which spanned both the Milwaukee and the EJ&E here at Rondout. Today the CNS&M is a bike path. Date is 5/15/55.

MILW RS3 470 by Chuck Zeiler

Milwaukee Road RS3 470 at Bensenville, Illinois on January 9, 1966, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built by Alco in November 1955 as Milwaukee Road number 2495 ( c/n 81710 ), classed 16-ARS ( 16 hundred horsepower, Alco Road Switcher ), it was scrapped at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin shops in June 1975. This is a late model RS3, having rectangular filtered carbody openings in two of the doors. Previous models had unfiltered louvers, allowing the prime mover to ingest dirt and sand, generally not recommended. The careful observer will note that the trailing RS3 is riding on Blunt trucks. This is a result of S2 switchers being traded to EMD on an order for GP30’s. The S2’s were sent to EMD ( Pielet Bros. ) on the RS3’s AAR Type B trucks, which were removed and installed on the GP30’s and returned to the Milwaukee Road. The S2’s Blunt trucks were installed under some RS3’s.
