Remarks & Notes 
As employees of the Milwaukee Road its a day we'll never forget. I'm on train 255 the news has just come out that the Milwaukee has filed bankruptcy and WTMJ sends a news crew to the Cutoff for back round footage. While we're making the double with two GP20's that can hardly pull the train the Trainmaster let's the news crew on board when we stop to film the departure from Milwaukee. It's six days before Christmas the company has gone bankrupt,divorce is looming and I've got an eight and a five year old girl and boy. But all that aside....we've got to get this 100 car train to Portage with these two guppies that can hardly hold the rail with no sand. The Trainmaster who I've forgotten used my camera to record this moment in time. The film crew camera can be seen at left.
