A couple of pix of the Milwaukee engines showed up on Facebook, from Greg Bunce via Railroad Images of Bygone Days (Public Group):

Of note on both engines are the oversized number boards the Milwaukee used in later years, and the square frame on the front of the headlight on No. 926. The latter was fairly common on a number of Milwaukee engines, but I've never been able to find out what it was for.

I'm not a collector of railroadiana, but if one of those Milwaukee Road headlights with the oversized number boards, with or without the square headlight frame, ever was available, I'd make an exception!
