Remarks & Notes 
I'm standing on the old Hy33 overhead looking west towards Milwaukee Road's Portage Yard as Amtrak's eastbound Empire Builder enters the west end of the Milwaukee Road's Portage Interlocking at 50mph and once the train is clear over the old Fox River draw span will increase speed to 79mph..The locomotive an ex-CB&Q E8 and to ex-GN F-type units are plenty of power to get the ex-GN and NP train to Chicago it's final destination after departing Seattle two days earlier.
