Remarks & Notes 
It appears we're between the Dells and Portage on an eastbound probably 204 or 264 depending when the number change came in. Either way it was still a Tacoma/Chicago train with Twin Cities/Chicago auto empties on the head end. It also appears we may have stopped in emergency as it looks like the Headman is walking along side the train. The old double track was in pretty rough shape at the time and most of us Engineers were encouraged by management to violate speed restrictions so as not to die on the road especially on the long pool west end between St.Paul and Portage.
