Description

Autumn leaves weren't the only things changing color in the fall of 1955, as the Milwaukee became Union Pacific's Chicago-Omaha link for the famed City Domeliners. UP mandated all cars match theirs, and the Milwaukee painted some 40 cars in yellow, gray and red. Easier to clean and maintain, the Milwaukee quickly began shopping cars in Hiawatha service, which were then upgraded with new trucks with disc brakes and notched side sills directly above for easier access, fixed steps to speed station stops, and new end lift rings and improved diaphragms. Reflecting these many changes, as well as the removal of the Tap Lounge in this era.

Autumn leaves weren't the only things changing color in the fall of 1955, as the Milwaukee became Union Pacific's Chicago-Omaha link for the famed City Domeliners. UP mandated all cars match theirs, and the Milwaukee obliged by painting some 40 cars in yellow, gray and red. Easier to clean and maintain, the Milwaukee adopted the scheme as its own and as cars assigned to the Hiawatha came due for shopping, each received numerous upgrades as well as a new coat of paint. Reflecting these many changes and the bold new scheme, this set makes it easy to model Hiawatha service from 1955 to 1971.
