Remarks & Notes 
With a manned GP30u fore and aft, the A-OK crew left Howe with 19 gons loaded with old crossties bound for Nevada Railroad Materials (NRM). At Wister, lead unit 2442 was cut-off and run into a siding, and then 2443 shoved the gons to the NRM facility west of town, where the loaded cars were spotted on the main. Running light, 2443 returned to Wister, and is being put to bed in the siding with 2442. When that task is completed, the crew will hop in the crew truck and head for A-OK headquarters at Wilburton, where they will work the yard with different power. When the two geeps were delivered to Santa Fe in 1963, this line was still a fairly important Rock Island main connecting Memphis with an SP connection at Tucumcari. Also serving Wister in those days was Frisco's Monett, MO to Paris, TX secondary main, which crossed CRI&P near where the photographer is standing.
