Remarks & Notes 
On a hot and sultry May afternoon, DT&I train DJ-1 with GP40-2s 406 and 415 has slowed down to a crawl and will stop briefly to work the Penn Central interchange at Quincy, Ohio. Morgan tower guarded the crossing of the DT&I and the former NYC "Bee Line," which ran between Cleveland and St. Louis. The tower was staffed with PC operators, however, the DT&I dispatcher always kept the operators busy copying and hanging train orders for the dozen-plus DT&I trains that passed by here everyday. Since the DT&I was a "dark" railroad and operated solely on train orders, most DT&I trains could always count on picking up orders "on the fly" from the "iron man" at Morgan.

My favorite railroad when I was young and even today. When I was growing up I can remember seeing these big orange beasts lumbering around the Jackson shops and yard.
