Welcome to the Milwaukee Road Historical Association

The Milwaukee Road Historical Association is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation founded in 1972 and chartered with the State of Wisconsin to study and preserve the history of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (The Milwaukee Road) from its inception in 1850 to its acquisition by the Soo Line Railroad in 1985. MRHA is not affiliated with any railroad company. It is recognized as the official historical body dealing with The Milwaukee Road, its predecessors and its subsidiaries.

The Illinois Railway Museum has purchased the Buffet Lounge Solarium Observation Car Mt Harvard from the Mid-Continent Railway Museum  However, they are seeking funds for the transportation of the car from Wisconsin to Illinois  (approximately $25,000 to $30,000)  MRHA will be making a contribution to help meet these costs, but due to the large amount needed, we are also asking our members  to contribute to meet the required costs  The car would be the second Milwaukee Road heavyweight car in the IRM  collection and is in operating condition  To contribute, please send your check or money order, made payable to "Illinois Railway Museum", to:

      Illinois Railway Museum   7000 Olson Road  Box427   Union IL 60180

Also, mark "For Mt Harvard" in the memo line   You can also make a donation through the IRM online store  IRM is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible
