Milwaukee Road Steam Era

Around 1928, the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad, began using 'The Milwaukee Road' as a nickname. As early as 1898, The Milwaukee Road garnered a reputation for uniquely colorful passenger equipment by applying the vibrant orange paint to their cars, the maroon trim was added in 1905. Unlike the widely colorful streamlined cars that railroads introduced in the 1930s, the heavyweight passenger cars were almost uniformly painted a dark green to match the Pullman company's growing fleet of sleeper cars. However, the Milwaukee Road already owned and operated its own fleet of sleeper cars painted in the unique orange and maroon colors.
