Very cool.  I wonder how much production that represents from the factory, a week?

Maytag washers were made in Newton IA. The plant was served by the Rock Island. This train would most likely have been routed Rock Island to the UP at Omaha, or possibly Colorado Springs.

Perhaps all the way to Council Bluffs... but routings were under the strict control
of the SHIPPERS, not the railroads, when the tariffs offered alternative routes. A few
nights on the town for the Maytag traffic manager at railroads' expense and those box
cars could go just about anywhere. :-)
