TRAIN TIME: Milwaukee Road Hiawatha #3 in Milwaukee

Our favorite locomotive - The Milwaukee Road Hiawatha! There were a number of these built by the Milwaukee Road in a variety of configurations. When the old steamers outlived their usefulness they were replaced with diesel locomotives, but it's the steamers that have my heart :-) This photo is Hiawatha #3 Class A Alco taken by Wes Barris in Milwaukee in May 1936. The engine was retired Sep 15, 1949. Enjoy!
