Remarks & Notes 
We're stopped on Bluemound One waiting for clearance to enter the A-Yard from the Hump Yardmaster. My recollection of all the in's and out's from back then are starting to grow thin as I'm not as young as I used to be....but I digress......The triple Nichol was probably my favorite of the SD7/9 rebuild program solely because of the old CRI&P whistle on the locomotive. To me....the heart,soul and personality of the locomotive came from it's whistle or horns as some with less soul themselves would say. I know that a locomotive to most people is an inanimate object but to me back then they were more then that they were alive with vigor and vitality and there was nothing better then to have a brace of them at your finger tips through the throttle and brake valve handle with the whistle chord or handle at your control of their voice.....I can ONLY IMAGINE what it must have been like to run say an old S2or S3 or L3A in the old Milwaukee steam days....
