Remarks & Notes 
Photog Unknown........from my collection....engine change on the Chip......When I was very young we lived about four blocks from the CMStP&P RR double track main line that ran in a depression from Harley Davidson just north of Miller brewery and A O Smith just south of North Milwaukee which was the inner city of Milwaukee. My father would get home from his job at the Milwaukee Road Shops as a Carman/Welder just before 4PM which I believe was about the time the Chippewa Hiawatha was do to depart downtown Milwaukee. I remember we'd walk from 36th St. to the bridge over the tracks on North Ave. and wait for the Chippewa HI to come storming up the grade from Grand Ave......around the bend past Harley Davidson it would come with a shrouded 4-6-2 or a shrouded 10 wheeler with the exhausts echoing of the walls of the cement depression all the way up the grade past and below us at North Ave......as it thundered up towards the A.O.Smith yard on its way to Ontanagen,MI.I can still remember the feel of that cold cement bridge railing my Dad would sit me on while the train pounded up the grade at about 40-50mph.....after the train past we'd wait for the trolley bus to go back home if we were to tired to walk...........
