Remarks & Notes 
Shortly after GB&W Train No. 6 arrived from Green Bay, it got busy working Ann Arbor car ferry "MV Viking" in the slip at Kewaunee, WI on June 17, 1981. Note how much the ship is listing starboard as cars are shoved inside. This went back and forth as the ship was loaded. I am sure that loading the ship was a balancing act and the weight (loads vs. empties) had to be evenly distributed. It was an interesting operation to watch.
