Remarks & Notes 
WOW......this is a far cry from what the Harwood Ave crossing looks like today.......photo taken back when the Milwaukee Road was already operating under belt tightening RRing....today they call it precision with three mile long combined trains.....well here comes a "Roaring nineties" 99 and a 213"Ford Train" combo about three miles long.... I believe the caboose just got on the mainline at the Cutoff and the Engineer put the throttle back in the corner from the smoke.....and their diggin in! Lucky that's a dead end crossing today.........
