Last Minute Christmas Shopping - Milwaukee Road

Port Townsend, Today. Are you looking for that “Last Minute” Christmas gift – especially for a Milwaukee Road railfan? Look no further!

Whilst researching Canadian National Railroad passenger equipment for upcoming articles, I ran across this Christmas gift idea. The
Lake Pepin. See “How’d They Do That?” December 7th.

Lake Pepin, ''the Lake of Tears,'' was formed by the delta of the Chippewa River, flowing into the Mississippi at the southwestern edge of Wisconsin. Penned in by this natural dam, the Mississippi swells into a lake with a width of 3 miles and a length of almost 30 miles, on the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Built in 1948 by the Pullman Co. for the Milwaukee Road , "Lake Pepin" is a 10 roomette/6 double bedroom sleeper built for service on the Olympian Hiawatha and Pioneer Limited.

Ozark Mountain Rail Car seems to have several ex Milwaukee cars in their inventory – perfect for “Last Minute” Christmas shopping!
