About this title


Invaluable and handsomely done history of the Milwaukee Road's steam locomotives, from the earliest "tea kettles" to the sleek Hiawatha engines to the mighty Northerns. The book is organized by the 13 locomotive classes the Milwaukee owned: American 4-4-0, ten wheeler 4-6-0, Atlantic 4-4-2, Consolidation 2-8-0, Prairie 2-6-2, Mikado 2-8-2, Pacific 4-6-2, Mallet 2-6-6-2, Hudson 4-6-4, Northern 4-8-4, Mogul 2-6-0, Shay 4-4, and switch engines (0-4-0, 0-6-0, and 0-8-0). For each class, the author provides an extensive discussion of the locomotive's history (strengths and weaknesses, changes over time, etc.), its use by the Milwaukee, the different modifications made to the locomotives in that class and some discussion of dispositions. The book also has a chapter on locomotive builders as well as three rosters: the Seaman Roster of 1882, the Milwaukee Road Roster of 1938, and the Updated Locomotives Numbers Roster. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos showing the locomotives in action and at rest. With bibliography. Cover art by Russ Porter shows an impressive Hiawatha under the Milwaukee clock tower. 208 pages.
