Remarks & Notes 
Back in 1972 I had the opportunity to access Milwaukee Road's Pigs Eye Yard and was able to get up close and personal with the retarder below the hump. Here a MILW cow-calf set has shoved a string of cars to the apex of the hump, and let go a TTX flat which is getting some clamping of its wheels as is rolls into the classification yard bowl.
