Remarks & Notes 
Photog CHIONE....from my collection......Becker the wrecker heads back toward the Davies Yard passing through Milwaukee Depot. Mr. Becker who was a commanding officer in the Army Reserve was the boss of the "BIG HOOK" for the years I worked out of Milwaukee in engine service.....Becker the wrecker was the handle that was affixed to him behind his back I believe......I remember the big wreck at Okauchee in 68 when 261 hit a low boy trailer and derailed at 60mph......four GP40's and 27 cars went into the ditch.....I remember I came down on the LaCrosse Hook from Portage and Becker with the Milwaukee hook was already working from the east end........Mr.Becker was the man in charge......he had the crews dig big holes in the farm fields to the south of the track structure where they buried 1968 Buicks....Hamms Beer.....and loads of other stuff....I've often wandered when they sold that land and sub-divided it for homes if any of that stuff was un-earthed..........
