Kato USA Olympian Hiawatha Milwaukee Road 9-Car Passenger Set (Post 1952 Version) Ready to Run, N Scale

On June 29, 1947, the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul and Pacific Railroad's (Milwaukee Road) inaugurated its streamlined flagship "Olympian Hiawatha" on a 43-hour, 30-minute schedule between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest.

The Olympian Hiawatha ran through scenic Idaho, Montana's Bitterroot Mountains and Washington's Cascade range. 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 sightseeing yet insulated for harsh weather.
