MILWAUKEE ROAD SHIPPERS GUIDE
MILWAUKEE ROAD SHIPPERS GUIDE Rails Unlimited has reprinted the 132-page book listing prototype industries from 1943. The book was produced for the Milwaukee Road and lists each town the line passed through and then listed all the industries of that town, and identified each industry as Milwaukee served, served by another railroad, joint served by Milw and another railroad or a team track customer. The book is divided by commodities, such as "grain dealers", "refineries", "ice manufacturers", "packing Houses" and many more subjects. See the sample page.

I use the book extensively for prototype waybills on my railroad. It also has much historic value, listing industries in 1943. The book has a plastic binding allowing it to open flat. It has an attractive orange/yellow cover same as the original, protected by a clear plastic cover and heavy back cover.
