This Skytop Lounge car was built by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad's Milwaukee Shop in 1948 as part of the railroad's new Twin Cities Hiawatha streamlined passenger trains. The trains featured styling by Brooks Stevens, a noted industrial designer in Milwaukee. RHMA owns several former Hiawatha cars, which it operates on excursions and private charters.
