Volume 2 continues the coverage of Milwaukee Road operations on the Montana and Pacific Northwest lines, the Sioux City/Council Bluffs line, and the Kansas City line. The Montana coverage includes a detailed survey of electric operations from the author’s 1968 visit.  A detailed account of the author’s dynamometer car test of GP59/B32-8 demonstrators details the operations from Minneapolis through Milwaukee and Chicago to Ottumwa on the Kansas City line, and the background behind the acquisition of the iconic Soo SD60s. Also included is a detailed look at the Wisconsin Central before its acquisition by the Canadian National. This volume concludes with coverage of the Chicago-Terre Haute-Louisville operation.
