Historic photo! The Milwaukee Road, Midwest Hiawatha passenger train in 1943.

I found this historic Milwaukee Road photograph on the internet recently, but unfortunately do not recall what particular website I had found this one at.

The Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad, was one of those railroads who were pitching themself as a "Modern and High Tech" railroad.

Begining with streamlined steam locomotives and unique stylish lightweight passenger trains during the 1930's...The former Milwaukee Road strongly attempted to maintain a modern and efficient first class corporate image.
