Synopses & Reviews
Author Pat Dorin gives an excellent overview of The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific passenger trains starting with the streamlined, steam-hauled Hiawatha and following the story through to the introduction of Amtrak and beyond. Cars are covered in detail as well as motive power. Reproduced timetables and ads give a good feel for the passenger era. Modellers, Milwaukee Road fans, and passenger train devotees will all find material of interest in this general overview of the period and the great service of the Milwaukee Road.
