Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific RR

Recommended Posts

Gone but not forgotten... still Bangin the gems threw the Midwest!

 

 

 

 

 

A new wood-burning locomotive, hurtling down five miles of newly-built track at 25 mph, pulling two open freight cars loaded with dignitaries and railroad officials, all holding their hats and hanging on for dear life-this marked the beginning of railroading in Wisconsin.

This same test run also marked the beginning of what was to be come the Chicago , Milwaukee , St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, known more informally as the Milwaukee Road . Today, this is one of our major railroads, stretching more than 10,000 miles as it reaches from Chicago and Indiana on the east to Omaha and Kansas City on the western end and to Seattle and Tacoma in the northwest.

 

 

The Milwaukee Road, officially the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (CMSP&P RR) (AAR reporting mark MILW), was a Class I railroad that operated in the midwest and northwest of the United States from 1847 until its acquisition by the Soo Line railway on January 1, 1986. The company went through several official names and faced bankruptcy several times in that period.

While the railroad does not exist as a separate entity anymore, it is still commemorated in buildings like the historic Milwaukee Road Depot in Minneapolis, Minnesota and in railroad hardware still maintained by railfans.

 

 

 

LONG LIVE THE MIGHTY MILWAUKEE ROAD!!!
