Wordy Wednesday - Milwaukee Welded AAR Hopper MILW 94090

The Milwaukee Road rostered 2,000 unusual hoppers built between 1937 and 1944 in the company shops, nos. 94000-95999. They closely followed the AAR design, but featured welded construction. In addition, the spacing of the "stakes" at the top of the side differed from the AAR standard. The cars were equipped with Equipco (shown here) or Universal power hand brakes, Enterprise door locks, and Barber S-1 (shown here) or S-2 trucks with spring planks. Photo Collection of J.

  1. Thank you for posting this information. I have been interested in this series of cars since seeing a photo in Train Shed Cyclopedia. Doug K
