I saw a similar E unit just like the 37A while in Montana that was residing with the sole surviving MILW Little Joe.

The illinois railway museum in Union, IL. They have a few examples of MILW units and equipment. Don't think this E unit wasn't running last year, and it sounded pretty rough while idling. But they still managed to get it moving!

I dunno much about trains... but when they made them like this they had character.

They had style. They were designed by GM, and you can see a little of the pre-1950's GM auto style in them
