Hiawatha Observation lounge

Hiawatha Observation lounge

1948 publicity photo of a Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad "Skytop" lounge car. The Milwaukee's streamlined Hiawatha passenger trains featured a variety of distinctive observation cars. The fourth and final design was the Skytop Lounge, styled by industrial designer Brooks Stevens and produced by the Milwaukee Shops in 1948. The cars' round ends were 90% glass and included 24 revolving chairs, plus a drawing room.

The eastbound Olympian Hiawatha pauses in La Crosse, WI, May 30, 1954, on its way to Milwaukee and Chicago. Brooks Stevens designed the train, including the signature Skytop Lounge. Stevens was a noted industrial designer with national credentials. The Milwaukee Road commissioned him to redesign the post-WW II Hiawathas, which had been first streamlined in 1935. Pullman built the parlor-sleeping cars for the Olympian Hiawatha, and the Milwaukee Road built the parlor-only Skytop Lounge cars.
