Kato N Scale: Milwaukee Road "Olympian Hiawatha"

Prototype Information:

From 1947-1961, the Milwaukee Road Olympian Hiawatha ran passenger excursions between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest, operated by the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul and Pacific Railroad.

The Olympian Hiawatha took scheduled excursions through scenic Idaho, Montana’s Bitterroot Mountains, and Washington’s Cascade range. On June 29, 1947, the Milwaukee Road inaugurated its streamlined flagship on a 43-hour, 30-minute schedule. This was advertised as being a “speedliner.” The railroad contracted industrial designer Brooks Stevens to design the train consist, which included some unique and signature cars of the Milwaukee Road.

In 1952, the first full-length “Super Dome” cars were added, which included 68 dome seats and 28 lounge seats. The dome area featured seats positioned lengthwise, facing the 625 square foot double-pane windows. Ideal for insulation, and sightseeing.

Passenger Car Features:
  • Totally new FP7 mechanism and new F7B shell to reflect the prototypical appearance of the Milwaukee equipment
  • All new uniquely tooled cars for the Hiawatha train.
  • Each car is equipped with low flange wheels and KATO magnetic knuckle couplers.
  • the Post 1952 Super Dome and Distinctive Tail car will be exquisitely modeled with full maroon interiors and flush windows.
