Milwaukee Road Hiawatha Details

* Matches Equipment used 1955-1971 * Correct Armour Yellow, Harbor Mist Gray & Red inspired by the "UP Streamliner Scheme" * Modernized Ends * Correct Later-Style Diaphragms & Lift Rings * Notched or Straight Side Sills as Appropriate * 8' Nystrom Trucks w/Disc or Clasp Brakes as Appropriate * Die Cast PROTO-Max(TM) Knuckle Couplers * Modeler-Applied Wire Grab Irons By late 1954, Union Pacific was unhappy with how long-time partner Chicago & North Western handled UP passenger trains between Omaha and Chicago. Work to find a new route began, and on September 20, 1955, Milwaukee Road president John P. Kiley announced that they would handle UP's trains, including the flagship City of Los Angeles, starting October 30. UP required cars in the Cities pool wear Armour Yellow and Harbor Mist Gray. Milwaukee planned to paint nearly 40 cars for the five trains, but quickly found the UP scheme less expensive to apply and more durable than its own. Starting in 1956, all non-commuter passenger cars and locos began receiving the new colors, which would remain the standard until Amtrak took over in 1971- www.walthers.com

From 1935 on, the name Hiawatha symbolized the fastest and best the Milwaukee Road had to offer. As the original Chicago-Minneapolis trains grew in popularity, the road built all-new Hiawatha streamliners to serve Midwestern and Pacific Northwest destinations.

The entire fleet was refitted in 1948 with 153 new lightweight cars and in 1952, the Milwaukee revolutionized its luxury service with full-length Super Dome cars.

Now, these great trains are rolling once again, as Walthers celebrates its 75th Anniversary with a complete series of Hiawatha equipment in HO Scale.
