Remarks & Notes 
Cold in the winter and hot in the summer.....The Milwaukee Road's Milwaukee Diesel House was where all the Machinists/Pipefitters/Carpenters and many other Crafts made it happen. No matter what the defects were these guys were miracle workers with locomotives. In my early career as a Fireman/Hostler I was among the many that worked with these mechanics and learned a number of things I would later get to use on the road as both a Locomotive Fireman and Engineer that would get an errant locomotive back in working order out in the middle of nowhere.......My enthusiasm would not wane during my entire 40 year career as even as Superintendent I would still climb aboard an errant locomotive trying to help a road crew out of a situation thinking back of what I learned back in the 1960's. Today with all the computerization I dare say I wouldn't be much help anymore..........
