Steel Rails Vol 3 No 7 Milwaukee Road 261

Filmed in the spring of 1994 we see the Milwaukee Road 261 on an excursion trip from Chicago to N. Fond du Lac, WI on the Wisconsin Central.

One notable scene is passing Indian Head Park in Mukwonago, Wisconsin. Here is the East Troy Railroad Museums connection to the Wisconsin Central. We see two 261 pass two electric cars near the interchange.

The video ends with three Wisconsin Central freight trains in the rain.

This series of videos was made to promote the Grand Rapids Model Railroad Club in Grand Rapids Michigan starting in 1992

We have about 48 episodes in the Steel Rail Series covering a variety of Railroad subject within a one day drive of Grand Rapids MI. Like and Subscribe to be notified of new uploads

Nice video. Thanks for posting! Seeing the Bluewater Chapter cars in that video also brought back a lot of memories of steam trips sponsored by Bluewater.
