Remarks & Notes 
The wonders of working for the railroad in winter is when you have to get on and off icy equipment to throw a switch, only to find out that you have to clean out the points before you can do so. After making a setout, power on the PRGBA (Proviso to Green Bay) is now ready to get back to its train, but only after one of the crew has finished cleaning out one of the crossover switches, finally “bending the iron” when all the accumulated snow is swept out. Duty finished, he swings aboard the steps of C&NW SD40-2 No. 6879 for the short ride back to their train. That warm cab will surely feel good when the work is done!

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
