Skytop Lounge #189 Priest Rapids

189 "Priest Rapids" - This car was soaked in oil and then burned by the Milwaukee shop forces during spring 1970. An area fan photographed the car after the fire and the gutted & warped car appeared in the good old Milwaukee publication "Trains Magazine". This "unauthorized" photo effectively slammed the door in the face of every other railfan for the remainder of the Milwaukee Roads' existance (died 1985). Absolutely NO photographs were allowed: "Zero Tolorance". Only sanctioned tours allowed visits, and only two or three of these allowed cameras on the property. The shell of this car was quietly cut up during august 1970. Car status "scrapped"(died in armour yellow).
