Remarks & Notes 
The other morning I met an old friend at the CP's grade crossing of Schmidt Rd.near the West Davenport,IA. yard office. We both started on the Milwaukee Road back in the 60's. I've been retired for 10 years but my old friend labors on. Its duties do not require it to cross five mountain ranges any longer and its paint job is a wee bit worn but on it goes moving freight cars around the yard on the west side of Davenport,IA.. Carry on 2066 maybe you'll get one of the fancy red paint jobs before you retire....I think I'm jealous!

A collection of engines, cabooses, cars, etc., great and small that are past their prime, but represent a spirit of railroading that will never pass away!!
