Remarks & Notes 
We're stopped at Portage Jct. on the westward track probably waiting for Amtrak. We've got four GEEPS and the DYNO car probably running tests on the lead freight car. As the GP40's are getting on in years and have proven themselves time and time again the test department wouldn't be testing them. I can't wait to get out of town as it was always a gas to have four 40's and just wheel the you no what out of this train to Milwaukee. Back in the 60's when you had four 40's on train 262 the Thunderhawk you could run Portage/Milwaukee in 90 minutes with a 75 to 100 car hotshot....those WERE the days.
