“The New Streamlined Olympian Hiawatha Speedliner, circa 1947”

The streamlined Olympian Hiawatha operated from 1947 to 1961 and was one of several Milwaukee Road trains to carry the name “Hiawatha.” The Olympian Hiawatha was designed by industrial designer Brooks Stevens and included the distinctive glassed-in “Skytop” observation-sleeping cars, and later featured full-length “Super Dome” cars.
