Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Funnily, despite all the evidence for the Milwaukee Road having the first steamer to 100 and the fastest steamer, none of those Milwaukee steamers are preserved.  On the other hand Flying Scotsman called at Milwaukee in the summer of 1970 and Eisenhower is now preserved in a heated building in Green Bay.  (It guards the first two Super Bowl trophies!)
