Remarks & Notes 
We're tucked in the clear on the westward siding at Oconomowoc,WI. probably waiting for Amtrak or one of Milwaukee's hotshots. I see one of the Brakemen has messed with the number boards again so I'll have to straighten it out later. The 312 was from the last series of GP9's the Milwaukee bought in if I remember correctly 1959. They had the cash register control stands with 26 air and a horizontal whistle valve that you could work with your left foot and have your right foot up on the heater. With both hands free for the throttle and air brakes while cruising along at high speed with your back firmly pressed into the back rest of the toad stool seat....what more could a Hogger ask for on a patrol job!
