Remarks & Notes 
We're stopped on the eastward main track at the Brookfield Depot. While the crew is in the depot talking with agent Al Paske I walk back to get a shot of our headend next to the old depot. We've got four FM locomotives to deliver to the new Western Wisconsin RR at Waukesha that the state of Wisconsin has purchased for the new shortline. This job was one of my favorites as we would go to work in Milwaukee and perform way work to Portage including the Waukesha branchline. If I recall we would come east out of Portage the next day doing the same thing. It was something to the effect of old 255/254 but with the branch thrown in for good measure the difference being daylight not dark as the other job was.I remember this year as the year we lost LINES WEST and became almost a shortline ourselves....we went from a 10,500 mile RR to less then 5,000 miles overnight!
