Remarks & Notes 
Its days like these that will live in my memory forever. With the F-unit not loading, the clean shaven old ex-GN, ex-BN, and ex-BNSF hogger Frank Christopherson pressed the mic button on the radio and simply said "Well, shes pulling harder than usual, but we aren't gonna stall". They never did. One former DM&IR SD-18 and one veteran of railroading's heyday got 122 coal cars over the Lakefront line to the BNSF with nary a problem. That is what railroading is all about. Getting the job done.
