Remarks & Notes 
Engineer Ed Roddincurch was a regular on the Soo Line's Laker passenger train until the SOO pulled the train I believe in 1963. Ed bumped onto train 234/233 between Fon du Lac and Milwaukee. When I first started on the Milwaukee Road I used to see Ed when we would turn his engine the 2381 in Milwaukee. I believe it was the only SD7 on the entire SOO RR.....In the photo above Ed has two U30C locomotives on his way back to Fond du Lac.....Since I've had a number of car people let me know that this is 1977 not 72 I've changed the date....pictures don't lie.....I forgot to mention that I met Ed Roddenkurch when my long time friend Bruce Feld and myself bummed a cabride in the early 60's from Chicago to Waukesha with Ed....and THANKS everyone for the heads up and the insight on the 70's car stuff.
