Remarks & Notes 
Adam Farence Photo......Adam's westbound freight meets Amtrak's Empire Builder at MP 164 just west of Rio,WI.. At just about this very same spot back in the 60's when this was all double track I was firing for either Joe Limberg or Leo Meyers on #57 the Fast Mail when we hit a car at Rio derailed the front truck of our lead E9 at 90+MPH stopped at this spot. I climbed down to find that our lead truck was on top of the auto and the guy was still alive....this was about two miles west of Rio when we finally got stopped.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
