Remarks & Notes 
Milwaukee Road's Road Master between Milwaukee and La Crosse Wi. back in the 1970's was a gentleman by the name of Jim Ely.......Jim had a big ol dog that would ride shotgun with him in his hi-rail.......Jim used to hunt deer from his hi-rail on the Old-Line between Pardeeville and Portage.........Jim was quite the character! I believe his dog is in the right hand seat in the photo.
