Remarks & Notes 
Milwaukee Road's Ford Train is approaching Harwood Ave. crossing when the Wauwatosa Police Dept assigned an officer during the day. Years ago when I started on the Milwaukee we had a crossing watchman on Harwood Ave. When the RR abolished the assignment the police officer was added.....reason being when cars would stop at the intersection of Harwood and State traffic would tend to sit on the RR tracks and it was the officers job to get the crossing clear of cars that fouled the tracks. In the early 60's an armored truck was hit by the Morning Hiawatha and money was tossed everywhere.....no one was injured but to this day I've heard that silver coins have still surfaced at the crossing which is no longer a main thoroughfare.
