At our first Milwaukee Employees Annual Luncheon (M.E.A.L.) in 2011, we invited the former Milwaukee Road employees to share some of their memories with us. Nolan Weis and Peter O’Cain with the Cle Elum news program on Inland Networks Channel 40 interviewed them on video. We’ve placed the videos on YouTube so you can hear what they told us.

Links to the videos are here:

We did it again this year with a different group of former employees and will get those interviews online once they're ready.
