The 1935 Milwaukee Road Hiawatha Project
This classic train will be faithfully recreated in HO and N Scales to celebrate the Trains's 75th Anniversary.

When introduced, the train was lead by the sleek and powerful Class A 4-4-2. Following was America's first Tap - Cafe car, three Coaches, a Parlor car and Milwaukee's unique Beaver Tail Observation.
All will be available in State of the Art Injection molding with numerous add on details. The locomotive will include a smooth and powerful DCC ready drive. Cars will feature metal wheelsets, wire grab irons, knuckle couplers and interiors.

The first set will include Locomotive #1 in it's original paint scheme, the Tap-Cafe car, Coaches #4419, 4428, 4439, Parlor Car Minnewawa and Observation Wenonah. Two additional coaches will also be available. This will be the only time to get Locomotive #1 in it's original paint scheme.

For further info on the Hiawatha the Fox Valley Poster is available here

Drawn by the first newly built scientifically streamlined steam locomotives, designed for speed faster than steam locomotives ever attained heretofore, two Milwaukee Road speed-lined trains were placed in daily service between Chicago and St. Paul-Minneapolis on May 29, 1935. The 410 miles between Chicago and St. Paul are covered in 390 minutes.

Traversing territory rich in Indian lore, the train is named the Hiawatha for the great Mohawk Chief whose legendary endowments, as immortalized by Longfellow, includes swiftness of foot:
"He could shoot an arrow from him,
And run forward with such fleetness
That the arrow fell behind him!"
The oil-burning steam locomotives were especially designed for this particular service. They have a
steam pressure of 300 lbs.: driving wheels are 7 feet in diameter.

Load weight of the engine is 280,000 lbs. Loaded weight of tender is 247,500 lbs. Length of engine and tender 85 ft. Boiler pressure 300 lbs. Water capacity of tender 13,000 gals. Fuel oil capacity of tender 4,000 gals. Maximum tractive power 30,700 lbs. The whistle is above the headlight. The bell is directly inside the grating at the extreme front end. The "smoke stack" is just back of the headlight. A smoke elevator lifts the smoke up so that it is carried off above the cars. The housing on the extreme front of  the engine may be opened exposing a standard coupler, in the event it is desirable to couple an engine or car to forward end.

All the coaches, the parlor cars and the cafe cars are speed-lined, full size, of welded steel construction, about one third lighter in weight than the cars generally in use. The cafe cars have special buffet features and the luxuriosly appointed coaches have conveniences new to coach patrons. To reduce air resistance the contour of all cars conforms to the locomotive, presenting a smooth unbroken line from head end to the rear of the "beaver tail" cars at the end. All of the cars are air conditioned.

Introduction of the first speed-lined steam train continued the Milwaukee Road's outstanding record of contributions to modern railroading. It was the first line between Chicago and the Twin Cities and is still the only double tracked route; was the first to use steam heat and electric lights on Chicago-Twin Cities trains and the first to operate all-steel trains between Chicago and the Twin Cities. It was the first line to adopt roller bearings for through passenger trains, and has pioneered in the operation of trains across mountain ranges by electric power, and it is the only railroad operating over its own rails all the way from Chicago to the North Pacific Coast.

Routed via Milwaukee and LaCrosse the new speed trains operate via the line over which the United States government has routed its mail trains between Chicago and the Twin Cities for more than a half century.

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
