The Milwaukee Road makes a comeback!

At least on the Evergreen!  Engine 156 was Milwaukee's entry into the Bi-centennial paint schemes
that covered the United States railroads back in 1976. This one was one of the best.
So here we are in 1976 with 3 units on the point pulling a large trainload of equipment. The F45 in the
middle is another rare model the railroad had on the roster.
The engineer ignores the competition as both enter their own tunnels thru Mount Whitney.
What is really special is these Locotrol unit 2/3 of the way back in the train.
As Don Carnegie's train made its way around the mountain he now has done a 180 degree turn and
passes his own caboose. Ah the good old days!
