Remarks & Notes 
It must be Monday as a crew always deadheaded east on Mondays. I'm in the third unit of the Thunderhawks power probably moving at about 60mph depending on the guy driving in the lead unit.....some were faster then others. We probably came up on the "Roaring 90's" our late night piggyback train from Chicago to the Twin Cities last night....our portion would have been Milwaukee to Portage. Anyway we'll get home a little earlier today as we didn't wait for Amtrak's Empire Builder. I remember deadheading east like this a time or two and upon getting to Milwaukee the Caller said they cancelled the deadhead so you better get your behind back to Portage to come out in turn......boy I'll tell you you had to do some scrambling then!
