On the old MILWAUKEE ROAD
Produced by Bill Warrick and narrated by Jim Scribbins, this program traces the history of The Milwaukee Road.
From Chicago to Lake Superior, west to Seattle and Tacoma, and across the plains into the Dakotas, the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad was America's Ambassador of speed on rails! This documentary tells the history of The Milwaukee Road while presenting the best film footage from several major collections including The Milwaukee Road Historical Society and film from the railroad's own files. You'll find expert coverage on steam, electric and diesel motive power, the great Hiawatha passenger trains, freight service, and even several bankruptcies plus its transcontinental main line. For anyone interested in The Milwaukee Road or the great streamliners of the 1930's and '40's, this program is a must!
Commentary by Jim Scribbins, Wallace W. Abbey, Jim Neubauer, George Krambles, Bill Jannsen, and Sandy Goodrick.
And---an original song composed especially for this program!
