HI - Glad to be here! I am a Milwaukee Road fan. I am a volunteer with the Upper Musselshell Historic Society in Harlowton, Montana. I am retired and am having fun with the Society. We have a four part Railroading in Central Montana project. First, we have created the largest portal on the internet to websites featuring the Milwaukee Road: some 165 sites. To find this portal, go to our home page <> and click on the engine on the home page (our home page is being rebuilt so what you see is not much). Once at the railroad page, click on the railroad links button at the TOP of the railroad page and enjoy. Second, we have the largest collection of Milwaukee Road HO models in the US. Third, we have the largest resource library about the Milwaukee and the Montana (Jawbone) Railroads in the country. Finally, we are working on two books and a magazine article about the Milwaukee Road.
