Remarks & Notes 
Each Division headquarters had use of a GMC/Chevy Hi-Rail. When Engineer Licensing started in 92 the Feds said we had to get all our Road Foreman qualified on the entire property. Riding a train for the entire length of a territory most times was out of the question as it may take you a week to get from one end to another. Since we had to physically see the territory and familiarize ourselves with the territory that's where the Hi-Rail vehicle came in. On this trip I'm taking RF/Engineer Trainer Jim Panick from the Twin Cities to Kansas City. These familiarization trips usually were an annual event for the Road Foreman/Trainers that did most of the classroom training in the Twin Cities.
