Remarks & Notes 
I remember the Milwaukee's Baby Trainmasters as galloping giants. I remember running them on the Tosa Patrol (Milwaukee/Oconomowoc Local) where if you weren't careful through the short crossovers between the mains they would derail. Remember,back in those days what you derailed you rerailed which made for more work and really P O'd trainmen. You didn't want to get your Conductor or Brakeman to mad at you or they'd run you in to a standing cut of cars with air and you'd go flying out of the seat and kiss the cab door or some other piece of metal. More then one Engineer got his lessons in following the mit that way....but I digress. The baby TM's were fast...when you opend the throttle you'd better hang on...they were great for kicking cars and switching out large cuts. In their later years one of them(I believe there were only five) had a Nathan M5 whistle procured from a another locomotive mounted on the front Engineers side....it not only sounded great but looked really cool too! The above photo was taken at Portage as the locomotive was being shipped back to Milwaukee for whatever fate it had waiting for it.
