A historical discussion list for fans and modelers of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad - aka "The Milwaukee Road". The Milwaukee Road was famous for its many superb passenger trains and popularly known by its "The Route of the Hiawathas" moniker. The western end of the system (Montana, Idaho and Washington) once boasted hundreds of miles of electrified mainline operations. Rolling stock carried the familiar "MILW" reporting marks. Today, many years after the sale to Soo Line in 1985, freight cars can still be spotted proudly bearing "MILWAUKEE ROAD" on their flanks. We also recommend our sister group, [MILWmodelers] at for additional information on the Milwaukee. It's not restricted to modeling!

-=[PLEASE keep discussions related to the period PRIOR TO the 1985 sale. Current operations over former MILW lines by other railroads is not relevant to this list.]=-
