Remarks & Notes 
Train 264 the Tacoma,WA./Chicago,IL. secondary hotshot pulls past Mobil Oil on its trip east to load the rear end crew on the caboose at the depot. As soon as that is accomplished the throttle will be widened out to the 8th notch for a 60mph trip to Milwaukee and its final crew change. If I remember correctly there were 20 crew changes between the west coast and Chicago before interdivisional runs.
