Milwaukee Road E9 32A
Author: kevink

The Friends of the 261 groups has acquired the Wisconsin Southern #101, former Milwaukee Road 31A. IIRC, it was delivered to the Milwaukee in the UP’s Streamliner scheme as part of the Road’s contribution to the Cities trains power pool.


Website says it will be painted to match the current fleet so looks like it will be in orange and maroon. Pretty cool if not historically accurately. I look forward to seeing it in action.

An orange/maroon/black E9?  That will be a first.  However, the E7s received that paint scheme before the take over of the UP trains between Chicago and Omaha in 1955.

It will also be a first if it runs with the 261 as well.  Steam was gone by 1954 on the Milwaukee.  The E9s didn't show up until 1956.
