Remarks & Notes 
CHIONE set Bingen/Farence Collection.....Back in the 60's I was firing for Dell Westby on the Waukesha Job......We had a right over opposing trains from Brookfield to Grand Avenue with the Tosa job getting the order at Wauwartosa. Dell Westby was a good whistler so he was blowing a long and a short for running aginst the currant of traffic. Well...we come around the curve coming into Tosa and at 49mph slowing for the 35 at Harwood and I see the Tosa conductor running towards us with a lit fusee swinging us down...I yelled to Dell to plug it and we stopped just about wher the Tosa engine had been as he was backing up at full speed ....we had the 550 and they had the 548......it turned out the Tosa agent never delivered the train order to the tosa job before he went home............
