CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE, ST. PAUL AND PACIFIC RAILROAD 606

About Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad 606

Built in 1954 by General Motors Electro-Motive Division for the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad (The Milwaukee Road), this SW1200 was used for switching on many parts of the Milwaukee Road’s vast system. The locomotive is equipped with a 12 cylinder, 1,200 horsepower EMD 567C prime mover. The 606 was acquired by TVRM from the United States Navy in Crane, Indiana in late 2015. The locomotive can be found operational at TVRM today, pulling some of the museum’s passenger trains, freight trains, and even switching, as it was originally built for.
