Remarks & Notes 
I hadn't seen the business car Wisconsin in years.......I remember when Leo T.Crowley the Chairman of the Board of the Milwaukee Road commuted in it every day from Madison to Chicago and return every day five days per week on trains 22 and 11 in the 1960's......I remember the first time I met Mr.Crowley I was just a little kid at the 100 year birthday of the CMStP&P RR at the Milwaukee Depot on the Wm.Crooks 4-4-0 from the Twin Cities....Mr. Crowley gave me a quarter!......I got to thinking back in 1950 a quarter purchased about what $2.50 does today....that was quite generous of the gentleman!!........I got to thinking even more that a quarter back then was solid silver so at todays prices it was worth about $6.41!!!
