Remarks & Notes 
A young Brakeman Poppe makes sure the switches are all lined into the yard as 254 from the Twin Cities and LaCrosse crosses over from the eastward main track into the yard. John will re-board the locomotive as it goes by him and the rear-end crew on the crum box(CABOOSE) will line all the x-overs back for the mainline. NO SWITCHES were EVER left open and unattended on the main track......THAT was strictly a NO-NO!!
