How many of the Milwaukee Road's 3,000 plus steam locomotives are still viewable in photographs?  Seeking to answer this question is what the MRHA STEAM SEARCH is all about.  In pursuit of this goal; We SEARCH for rare or previously unseen photos of Milwaukee Road steam locomotives.  We ARCHIVE and RECORD the historic photos we find.  We SERVE as a clearing house for information about sources of steam locomotive photos.  We RESPECT the copyright of persons and institutions holding the rights to the materials.  We NEED YOUR HELP in the increasingly difficult work of finding, authenticating and obtaining the photos we are seeking.  We have found many but there are still 600 never seen photos of Milwaukee steam engines.  Here is a list of our "10 Most Wanted" missing engines:
