Love this shirt; good quality, the material is very comfortable and so glad I was able to find a shirt to honor my Dad who worked for the Milwaukee Road for 40 years.
The Milwaukee Road is a famous American railway system that operated for more than a century in the nation’s heartland. Officially known as the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, the Milwaukee Road was famous for its speed records, its cross country passenger service aboard its famed Hiawatha fleet of trains. Generations of travelers made memories aboard these trains. Alas, the railroad industry hit hard times in the 1960s and 1970s and the Milwaukee Road was sold, chopped up and eventually the last remaining portion was taken over by Soo Line in 1985.
Great dusty, dirty looking repro of Milwaukee Road logo as if it was taken off the side of a rusty locomotive.
