The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific (CMStP&P), better known as the Milwaukee Road, always went its own way. It headed west in 1909 and launched a unique streamliner, the Hiawatha, in 1935. The history of this company is quite complicated, filled with struggles and setbacks. As an independent it held no allegiances to others and was not influenced by moguls like Hill, Harriman, or Budd. Regardless, the CMStP&P blossomed into an impressive system that battled not only for the highly competitive Midwestern agricultural business but also lucrative Pacific Northwest transcontinental traffic. It enjoyed the longest, end-to-end network of any American railroad, stretching from Louisville, Kentucky to the Puget Sound. Perhaps Milwaukee Road's most glaring issue was a perpetual lack of leadership, which only became magnified in later years. In the end, its ultimate fate is a disheartening story of letdown and disinterest.
