MILWAUKEE ROAD SHOPS SPECIAL PHOTO COLLECTION

These unique, high quality, limited run photos, were created by both company employees and commercial photographers working for the Milwaukee Road. The negatives are either 8x10 or 5x7inches in size, yielding superb quality photographs. The prints are made by contact printing, archival processed, on medium weight, premium quality, glossy paper.

The photos are divided
into the following sections:
  • Diesel
  • Steam
  • Electric
  • Motor Cars
  • Passenger Cars
  • Maintenance of Way Equipment
The varied views of equipment are generally broad side of both sides, end views, 3/4 views and sometimes detail, overhead and interior views.

I will only have these negatives a short time. As the stock of prints sells out I may not be able to completely fill orders.

For each piece of equipment you may purchase as many of the views as desired.

The prints are priced as follows:
