Remarks & Notes 
My career ended in 2005 for medical reasons but in this photo my son Adam soldiers on as the Engineer on the local at Davis Jct.....that's him leaning out of the cab of the 4200. Today 10 years later Adam is the Senior Trainmaster/Road Foreman for Chicago to Antioch and Chicago and Fox Lake Lines on METRA. Adam's GrandPa's both John Farence who was a Milwaukee Road Carman for 42 years and John Schwab who was a Milwaukee Road Locomotive Engineer for 40 years both would have been as proud as I am.......in fact Cousins Jim and Dick worked for the Milwaukee as did Adam's Mothers brothers John and Dave did as switchman.....can't forget Uncle Hank and Uncles Roman and Will who worked in the West Milwaukee Shops........and of course my Grandpa and Great GrandPa's who started it all back in the old CMStP days.......
