Remarks & Notes 
Ex-MILW 2021 fresh out of the paint shop becomes SOO 4648. I had to get a shot before we climb aboard and head for Milwaukee. Looks like its gonna be a fun run...look at all that power....looks like four GP40's an MP15 and a GP9. These were still the days when they would all be on-line....no fuel conservation till 1990 when the CP takes over. The Soo Line may have bought the place but the Milwaukee was still running the show.
