Remarks & Notes 
We're stopped on the eastward main track at Voltz in a heavy Wisconsin fog. Voltz was a couple of sidings off the eastward and westward mains just a couple of miles west of Watertown with power switches on the entering end with the currant of traffic and spring switches on the leaving end of the sidings. The signals and switches were operated by the Watertown Operator. Our train is the eastbound Tacoma to Chicago Thunderhawk. It appears that the Milwaukee Road had already started re-numbering these locomotives as our second unit the 162 had no numbers in the front number boards for months do to lack of down time running back and forth on 261 and 262 between Chicago and the coast.
