Remarks & Notes 
Due to the flooding in the Reeseville Marsh on Milwaukee Road's Lacrosse Division mainline both Amtrak passenger and Milwaukee Road Chicago to the West Coast trains are being detoured via the weed grown Watertown to Madison branch on this day in 1979. At Madison,WI.the trains will turn north on the Madison/Portage branch and regain the mainline at Portage,WI..Here Amtrak's North Coast Hiawatha rounds the bend at the HY19 Main Street crossing on the east side of Sun Prarie,WI..Milwaukee Road Engineer Howard Roberts and Fireman Henry Salamone are on the head end with Henry giving a friendly wave for the camera.....hard to believe that's 39 years ago!

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