Hello all. Just joined and this is my first post. I previously had a n scale train (super chief) when I was a kid in the 1970s. I've now retired and wanted to get back into it. What sparked me was a 1946 video on YouTube called "Milwaukee Road, a railroad at work". I want to model that. What I'm needing is data on the train configuration from 1946. Thank you all.

What do you mean by 'train configuration'?

I just asked Mr. Google a couple questions and there appears to be a lot of information regarding "Milwaukee Road", so assuming you've seen all that already I won't repost.

I suggest doing some of your own reserach. A place to begin is to simply google "Milwaukee Road" which among other hits will get you the wikipedia entry:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago,_Milwaukee,_St._Paul_and_Pacific_Railroad
This is a long article but is probably worth reading all the way thorugh.

Farther down into thie wiki-article you get to a section on Miwaukee Roads's passenger trains. It mentions several named trains, like the Pioneer Limited and the Hiawatha (which was very famous). The articles has hot links to fruther more detailed articles on those, which will have details about them included a listing of what locos and types of cars the trains consisted of . . .

Thank you for your response. In the video I referenced, it referred to the afternoon Hiawatha. So by configuration, what I'm looking for is things like was the locomotives FT, F3, F7 or Alco in 1946? I assume beavertail but how many cars and what was thier mix. Things like that.

Then of course comes the fun of finding DCC N scale versions of them.
