Loved for their radically new, streamlined look, the "Hiawatha "s" "Art Deco engines were a hallmark of American industrial design a genre of passenger cars from Tip Top Tap to Touralux to the glass-encased Skytop. For Midwestern passengers from Chicago to Aberdeen, the "Hiawatha "represented speed, comfort, and luxury, offering spectacular views of the rolling landscape. From 1935 to 1970 it carried countless passengers and even more memories.
