Remarks & Notes 
The lack of sand on Milwaukee Road units during the winter months is fairly evident as the Engineer on a Chicago/Glendale train has a hard time keeping his rear unit holding the rail as he attempts to get his train out of Muskego Yard to attain the main line at the Cutoff. In most terminals on the Milwaukee the sand towers would freeze up do to the wet sand so units would not be able to be sanded and the above wheel slip and spins would be the result.
