Remarks & Notes 
Milwaukee Road Engineer Dick (RR) Frette stands at attention for his photograph on the head end of transcontinental train 264 stopped at Harwood Ave in TOSA. Dick hired out in 1964 back when the Milwaukee still was running six passenger trains each way and 10 freight trains on the La Crosse Division. Dicks Dad owned a car dealership at Portage but Dick chose to go RRing......When we were both Hostling in Milwaukee in the 1960's I used to marvel how Dick could walk around in all that grease and oil with white Levi's a sports shirt and no gloves never a spot of dirt on him yet I with bib overalls and mits would be covered from head to toe in dirt grease and oil....and back then the Milwaukee locomotives were covered with the stuff!
