A bunch of crooks mis-managed MWLW from the late 1950's on. Bookkeeping lies hid loses on eastern parts of the road by charging costs to the western extension. It looked like W.E. was loosing the money until they shut it down. Then it was bankruptcy for the whole railroad.
Another fine example of how Milwaukee's western extension was a well built railroad abandoned too early.
