Milwaukee Road @ Denver, Co.

Designed by famed industrial designer Brooks Stevens and built by the Milwaukee Road in 1948 in its own Milwaukee Shops for service on the Twin Cities Hiawathas, the Cedar Rapids is one of only four Skytop observation parlor lounges ever built and the only one that can still ride the rails today. Picture yourself reclining in the back of this car, enjoying a nice cold brew, as the tracks clickity-clack away.
