Remarks & Notes 
We're stopped on the westend of the flooded Reeseville Marsh on the 1.7% quarter mile grade out of the marsh. We're either waiting for a train to be shoved to us through the high water or we have just shoved one through to a crew and power on the other end. It was not unusual to do this push pull procedure with the freight trains for weeks on end. When the Madison and Northern Divisions were available we would detour via Madison one way and Horicon the other.
