Remarks & Notes 
We're stopped at Portage Junction on an eastbound CP train. Just north of this location was the "old" Soo Line yard at the end of the line that came down from Stevens Point,WI.. When I hired out on the Milwaukee in the 60's remnants of the old yard were still in place including the abandoned depot and yard office buildings. There even were a few boxcars still in the trackless yard. This is the locatio0n where the SOO connected with the Milwaukee and the Portage city street car line.
