The Milwaukee Road by DDL-Photography The Milwaukee Road by DDL-Photography
On October 9, 2011 a beautiful string of Milwaukee Road passenger cars passes by Dayton's Bluff in St. Paul, MN. They are part of the "Friends of the 261" Fall Colors Excursion with Heritage painted Amtrak 156 on the point. Since you can't see the Amtrak locomotive, you could imagine this scene taking place many years ago.

For more information on "The Friends of 261" Please check out their web site:

Hi Alex,

It's actually the rear passenger car in the train. It's an old retro style design that only the Milwaukee Road had on their rear passenger cars.

Thanks for stopping by!

Darin

Wow! It almost looked like a locomotive with forward view port for passengers.

Thank you, I appreciate that! Yeah, it reminds me of the old "Flash Gordon" TV shows and movie!
