Title: Milwaukee Road Scrapbook DVD
Publisher: Charles Smiley Presents
Book Condition: New
Milwaukee Road Scrapbook DVD by Charles Smiley Presents. See the Milwaukee Road's Electrification on the old Pacific Extension. Remember the 'Quills', Bi-polars, GE Box-cabs and GE 'Little Joes'. Additional coverage includes the Milwaukee Road's diesels and a nice review of Milwaukee Road's steam powered trains. This is Milwaukee Road's passenger and freight operations in its finest years. We also bring a good section on snow fighting, MOW equipment and practices as well as the frequent wrecks that kept the MOW people far too busy in the unfortunate years of decline. But overall, the Milwaukee Road's employees always came through in the best tradition of tough and dedicated mountain railroaders. Don't miss the comparative electrics on the Great Northern and the BA&P add to the history and scenic views. The copper ore trains that the BA&P actually preceded the Milwaukee's own electrification. The original electrified BA&P paved the way for Milwaukee's plans and gave them the impetus to 'go electric' -- in many ways. See highlights of rival Northern Pacific and more Great Northern regional competition of their own specialized electric trains and, their steam and diesel power. This video features mostly 16mm, beautiful, color film that captures the essence of the Milwaukee Road's Pacific Extension to Seattle and Tacoma, Washington. This is a fine history of the great Pacific Northwest -- and railroad history in general. To quote Model Railroad News, "Once again, Charles Smiley's magic resurrects old footage and combines it into a powerful story.". Charles Smiley Presents, 1 hour 14 minutes.
