Remarks & Notes 
A switching mishap where two trains tried to occupy a diamond at the same time is being cleaned up at Chicago and North Western’s Butler Yard at Butler, Wisconsin, in September 1983. C&NW EMD SD38-2 No. 6651 laid over on its side in the accident near the Hampton Avenue overpass. A sideboom dozer is now located on both ends of the locomotive and are being used as anchors and swivel points. A Fiat-Allis FL20 dozer, along with a steel cable attached to No. 6651’s frame, is slowly pulling the locomotive upright. As soon as the center of gravity is reached, the locomotive will crash down on its wheels with a big thud, and the process of rerailing will begin.
