Remarks & Notes 
We're stopped at Oconomowoc,WI. on the"Beast" to set out some hot cars for the Carnation company. Later in the day a Patrol will switch the cars and spot them. Mind you back in those days to stop a through freight at a customers door step was un-heard of. Normally the cars would go through to Milwaukee where within one maybe two days the cars would be switched up for the outbound Tosa Patrol and by the third or fourth day be at Carnation. This move by a somewhat forward thinking individual was probably not rewarded but an a## chewing would have probably been issued and something of the fact"that if we do it for one customer they'll all want that kind of preferential service." As a member of the crew WE probably tried to get out of doing the work based on our Union contracts or the snow storm or something like that....and that's how we got shortlines and regionals and lost a lot of business to trucks...........SERVICE THE CUSTOMERS!
