Reply to "Would You Buy a Milwaukee Road 4-6-0 Northwoods Hiawatha?"

I have a Milw streamlined 4-4-2.  That's enough streamliners for me.  I grew up 400 yards from a very busy Milwaukee Road line from Rondout to Fox Lake, IL and then to Walworth WI from 1946 to the end of steam.  I saw 0-6-0s, 4-6-0s, 4-6-2s, 2-6-2s, 2-8-2s, 4-6-4s and 4-8-4s.  They were all workaday black engines.  I NEVER saw a streamstyled steamer.  Even the Olympian Hiawatha was hauled by a diesel.  I would much rather have a plain G6 or G8 ten wheeler  than a streamlined ten wheeler.  In fact if one were being made now I'd grab one.    Odd-d
