These Photo's are of the train I lived by .The RR tracks were so close the train shook the house when it went though . I had a original Sign from a Milwaukee Road which I gave away years ago and wish I had kept .
Here are some Photo's of the early train . 2 are taken as they passed through my town . Photo 4 is first time train reached my town . 1st photo is how it looked when I lived near lake nearby the town I am in Now .
The train no longer runs it was closed down 1980

The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (often referred to as the Milwaukee Road) (reporting mark MILW), was a Class I railroad that operated in the Midwest and Northwest of the United States from 1847 until 1980, when its Pacific Extension was embargoed through the states of Montana, Idaho, and Washington

    I was wondering inky. Don't you love that head lamp? Must be 4'+ tall. Surely brass but how to display something like that? What are you doing up so early or so late?
