Remarks & Notes 
I'm on layover at Portage from a nocturnal freight run but before I go to bed I drive the 18 miles to the Dells to shoot the combined Empire Builder/North Coast Ltd. which Amtrak has been running for a year now. My old 53 Chevy $100 layover car gets me there down Hy 16. That old car had a trunk full of old snow tires and four on all the time as you could purchase them used at the local gas station for a couple of bucks a piece....the ones with the studs worn down were the best. Anyway I get there and around the curve comes the Builder with four old wagons and the 9700 in the lead. The semaphore signals are still in place between Portage and the Twin Cities and the Dells was still an open station as evidenced by the train order board at the depot.
