|GB&W train comes off the former Milwaukee Road "Valley Line"
at Wisconsin Rapids.
Bill Christopher of East End Productions videotapes #312 as it leads a train
back onto home rails. Fall flooding on the Whitehall Division forced trains to
be detoured south to the ex-Milwaukee Road (Wisconsin
Central) main line at La Crosse and then up the ex-MILW "Valley
Line" at New Lisbon. Note the "Homer E. McGee" lettering on the side of
the cab, in honor of the president of the railroad from 1934-1963.
