Christmas Card: 'Tis the season to wish a very Merry Christmas
'Tis the season once again to wish our friends and loved ones a very Merry Christmas.
A Moment of
Excitement in Chicago
Road's famous passenger train Hiawatha
storms under the approach tracks of the Chicago & North Western Railway as
a suburban passenger train passes overhead, nearing the huge and impressive
terminal to unload an eager crowd of Christmas shoppers. While the E-Class
4-6-2 steam locomotive has reached the end of its trip, the streamlined 4-6-4
#103, built in 1938, will continue to pull the Hiawatha all the way to Minneapolis at an average speed of 60 miles
per hour. With seven-foot drive wheels and abundant boiler horsepower, this
magnificent engine may well reach 100 miles per hour with ease. The Hiawathas were among the fastest and
finest-equipped in the country from 1935 through 1969. May their proud and colorful
history brighten your holidays!
