Remarks & Notes 
Another damp dreary Sunday at West Milwaukee Shops Round House One........It had to be a Sunday as that was always my day to snoop around and see what was what in the shops. In the 60's the shops still had shifts working on Saturday and Sundays but by the 70's the shops were closed on the weekends. I would come down early when I new I stood for 69/65/213 or 261....I'd stop at the callers office which was just outside of House One and tell then I was there. I would walk around the shops checking everything out....all the Milwaukee Road cops new me so it was not a problem with them. I sure was fortunate to be able to see and record the things I did back then.....I sure wish I would have spent more time taking photos of the Milwaukee Road then getting all tangled up with the in's and out's of everyday life.....sometimes you just don't know how much you can complicate your own life until you look back from later in it.............

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
