Remarks & Notes 
With the advent of Amtrak(NRPC)a lot of things changed on the Milwaukee Road. In engine service on the Lacrosse Division we lost over 30 Engineer and Fireman positions on passenger.....I went from one of the older passenger Firemen to the youngest Hostler Helper in Milwaukee helping Dick Pierce who went from the oldest freight pool Fireman to the youngest Hostler and Dick had over 25 years in engine service at the time. We did get the GM&O E7's though with their logbooks in their glove boxes....YES they had glove boxes just like Dad's 52 Chevy.....the logbooks showed that all of them had over 3 million miles most approaching 4 million.....after they came to work between Milwaukee and StLouis I don't believe the Logbooks lasted much longer as they all seemed to disappear......I always wanted to get one but never did! After I photographed the 103A in Milwaukee I did not see it again till I stopped at Paducah a couple years later and photographed it in a dead line at Paducah Shops on the ICG.
