#800197 MONTANA
Title:  #800197 MONTANA
Description:  Built in 1947 by the MILW shops as 18 seat diner 26 seat club (tap) lounge #162, 1 of 6 such cars (#162-#167) built for the OLYMPIAN HIAWATHA; these 6 cars were ordered in February 1946 and delivered between June and September 1947. These 6 cars were displaced from the OLYMPIAN HIAWATHA with the delivery of the SUPER DOMES in 1952, and the #162 was rebuilt to business car MONTANA in 1955. In 1978, the MONTANA was sold to private ownership, and was renamed MOUNT RAINIER. It was later renamed PRAIRIE ROSE, leased to the Friends of the 261 and Wisconsin Central, and painted in WC colors. Now under new ownership and based in Los Angeles, it has been repainted back to MILW Maroon & Orange as the MONTANA. For more info, see W. David Randall's "Streamliner Cars Volume Three". 1 of 28 private cars that arrived in Seattle over several days for the 2013 AAPRCO convention train to Napa, CA. EXIF: 2:23 PM, f/3.3 @ 1/200, ISO-100
