Inside: 'Tis the season once again to wish our friends and loved ones a very Merry Christmas. Additional Verse: A Moment of Excitement in Chicago The Milwaukee Road's famous passenger train Hiawatha storms under the approach tracks of the Chicago & North Western Railway as a suburban passenger train passes overhead, nearing the huge and impressive terminal to unload an eager crowd of Christmas shoppers. While the E-Class 4-6-2 steam locomotive has reached the end of its trip, the streamlined 4-6-4 #103, built in 1938, will continue to pull the Hiawatha all the way to Minneapolis at an average speed of 60 miles per hour. With seven-foot drive wheels and abundant boiler horsepower, this magnificent engine may well reach 100 miles per hour with ease. The Hiawathas were among the fastest and finest-equipped in the country from 1935 through 1969. May their proud and colorful history brighten your holidays!
