Remarks & Notes 
We're handling an FM Baby Trainmaster in train to Milwaukee. Years ago the Milwaukee Road Engine crews were paid by weight on drivers which was based on agreements from the steam days. When locomotives were handled to terminals for repairs they were carried in train as boxcars instead of with the locomotive consist this way the carrier did not have to pay the extra"weight on drivers"to the engine crew. The only problem with this was sometimes the locomotive got lost in the yards and did not make it within the time slot necessary so jobs were delayed. This practice disappeared as agreements changed and the efficient movement of the locomotives mattered more the game playing between union and management.
