Remarks & Notes 
We're on the Extra 2002 East on the eastward track between Doylestown and Fall River meeting the Extra CN 5041 West on the westward track. Meets like this were common place back in the Milwaukee Road days when it was double track almost all the way between Chicago and the Twin Cities. Nowadays the CP with its single track doesn't have the luxury of keeping trains moving the way the Milwaukee did and from what I hear the CP sure could use both tracks because their traffic density is three times what the Milwaukee Road had.
