Fans of the Milwaukee railroad join us Saturday, February 16th for the Twin City Model Railroad Museum’s salute to the Milwaukee Road, when we feature trains of the Milwaukee Road operating on many of the TCMRM’s operating layouts.
So put on your Milwaukee gear, and join us. There will be Milwaukee prints for sale 2pm-9pm and John Cartwright, local artist specializing in drawings of railroad facilities, will be selling his depot drawings at the museum, so come and pick up a print of your favorite depot.
Milwaukee fans will also want to stop at the Toy Train Division in the Chimney’s Building location, to visit with Tom Strauss, a retired fireman on the Milwaukee Road. Tom has a comprehensive history and collection of file photos of every diesel locomotive ever run on the Milwaukee Road, all meticulously hand written in journals, which in itself is work of art. Any information that you ever wanted to know about a particular locomotive Tom will likely have available.
