RailSmith- CMStPP Baggage 2050
The Milwaukee Road had several unique baggage cars. Unique because of their origin. In the case of baggage 2050, it was built in the Milwaukee Shops from the parts of several wrecked cars!
There are several CMStP&P baggage cars that had no windows in the doors. This is one of those cars and gives our baggage this unusual look.
This classic car is painted in the UP yellow and gray as the cars were in this time period, when the Milwaukee Road took over from the C&NW (1955) for the UP’s connection into Chicago on it’s ‘City’ trains.
