Prototype Information:

From 1947-1961, the Milwaukee Road Olympian Hiawatha ran passenger excursions
between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest, operated by the Chicago, Milwaukee,
and St. Paul and Pacific Railroad.

The Olympian Hiawatha took scheduled excursions through scenic Idaho,
Montanas Bitterroot Mountains, and Washingtons Cascade range. On June 29,
1947, the Milwaukee Road inaugurated its streamlined flagship on a 43-hour,
30-minute schedule. This was advertised as being a speedliner. The railroad
contracted industrial designer Brooks Stevens to design the train consist,
which included some unique and signature cars of the Milwaukee Road.

In 1952, the first full-length Super Dome cars were added, which included 68
dome seats and 28 lounge seats. The dome area featured seats positioned
lengthwise, facing the 625 square foot double-pane windows. Ideal for
insulation, and sightseeing.
