The City of Sioux City has received a $365,785 grant from the Iowa
Department of Transportation to make improvements to the former
Milwaukee Railroad roundhouse. The roundhouse is part of the Milwaukee
Railroad Shops Historic District, and home to the Siouxland Historical
Railroad Association. Among the displays at the roundhouse is Great
Northern Railway 4-6-2 No. 1355.
 
The complex was originally built in 1917 by The Milwaukee Road. The site
originally encompassed more than 50 acres of land and incorporated over
25 buildings to including a 30-stall roundhouse. The complex closed in
1981, and in 1995 the City of Sioux City awarded the Siouxland
Historical Railroad Association a grant to purchase the complex.
Clean-up/restoration work has been on-going ever since on the 31.5 acre
grounds and its six remaining buildings.
