Trains are the brutes of the transportation world. Big, ugly, uninteresting hulks. And that was the passenger trains. Brooks Stevens changed all that. We designed the Olympian Hiawatha for the Milwaukee Road to be a sophisticated mode of transportation. Streamlined and elegant, inside and out, coming and going. The stainless steel trimmed locomotive led the way but the “Skytop” observation car was the main attraction bringing up the rear. She was a “beaut” from stem to stern. Sorry, boating term.
