Remarks & Notes 
Milwaukee Road's fastest freight between Tacoma and Chicago this day waits in the clear as NRPC#32 rounds the bend at Portage Junction. NRPC(Amtrak)was the fledgling service none of us RAILS thought would ever last more then a couple of years after seeing and working all the old Milwaukee Road passenger trains. Train 32 was what was left of the Empire Builder/North Coast Ltd.. On this cold wintry day the Thunderhawk will be right on 32's markers all the way to Milwaukee. Photo taken from the Hy 33 overpass as no drones were available back then.
