1935 Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul &
NO. 3 4-4-2
Two new high-speed streamlined locomotives were delivered to the
Milwaukee Road in May, 1935.
They were designed to pull the new Hiawatha on daylight runs between
Chicago and the Twin Cities at an average running speed of 66
miles an hour, in six and a half hours. One of the new engines
before being placed in regular service made the 141 miles from
Milwaukee to New Lisbon in 113 minutes. On the return trip with
a train consisting of a dynamometer car and five coaches, it was
stopped from a speed of 100 miles an hour in 6,600 feet. The first
engines which were followed by two more were finished in the Milwaukee's
yellow, orange, maroon, and brown; with all piping and fittings
concealed under the shrouding, they presented a very smooth appearance
with their clean lines.
