Today, only an abandoned right-of-way extends across the grassy hills and through the pine forests of Montana and Washington State. This was the domain of the Milwaukee Road Electrics.|
DOUGLAS JONES, an avid fan of the Milwaukee Electric's visited these wide-open spaces in 1965. With camera in hand, he documented this unique bit of American railroad history in high quality 16mm color film. Here are some highlights of Doug's efforts:
* "Joes" in action over Pipestone Pass.
* "Box Cabs" crossing the Columbia River.
* "Steeple Cab" switches the South Butte Yard.
* The beginning of Dieselization in 1968.
DON L. HUNTER originally recorded the distinctive sound of this rugged and powerful form of motive power that is heard on the hi-fi soundtrack of this program.
REGE CORDIC, railfan-actor-announcer tells the story of this fascinating railroad. Broadcast quality film-to-video transfers makes it possible for you to enjoy these rare films in
