Frightening
Title:  Frightening
Description:  This shot is of the GTW Jordan Spreader that was based out of Pontiac back in the '90's (pictured at Rattalee Lake Rd.). Normally, the GTW used its spreaders as snow plows; however, on this occasion, it was "ditching" on the Holly Sub between Linden and Andersonville. Chuck reports that it was a very interesting day; but, that it was also very nerve-wracking! One would think that work trains would be easy duty. In actuality, they are probably some of the most tedious difficult jobs an engineer ever catches...and usually they go to the youngest men off of the Spare Board. Whether it be rerailing, unloading or picking-up ties, spreading or cleaning ballast, unloading rail or other track material, or ditching or plowing snow, these are very critical jobs that take the utmost concentration. Often workers are very close to the moving equipment and one foul move could cost an employee his life. Also, they generally work all day and without a fireman, the engineer never even gets to leave his seat.

GTW 4917
Title:  GTW 4917
Description:  On September 29, 1984 Chuck was called to deadhead from Milwaukee Jct. to Pontiac by auto to be fireman on a Passenger Extra (PX). We had units 4917 & 4918. The train actually made two complete circles as I recall. Both trips ran consecutively on the same day. Chuck worked the first, which ran from the yard in Pontiac, we backed down to the depot and everyone climbed aboard. We then ran to Pontiac Yard, over the Pontiac Belt Line and across the Romeo Sub to Richmond. From Richmond it was down the Mt. Clemens Sub to Milwaukee Jct., and then up the Holly to Pontiac. The second trip did the exact same thing.

Milwaukee Junction
Title:  Milwaukee Junction
Description:  We are aboard one of the former CV GP-9s at Milwaukee Jct. on 2-9-85. Lets see...the diamonds were still in, the tower was still standing, the Houlihan Wye was still in (that is the track that the caboose GTW 79133 [former DTS 133] is sitting on), the GP-9 had not yet been rebuilt or scrapped, D&M Yard was still open, Ryerson Steel was still in business on the Holly Sub and still receiving steel by rail, Chevrolet Gear & Axle and the Chevrolet Forge Plants were still in business and shipping and receiving by rail, and the Chevrolet Gear & Axle boiler house was still receiving coal by hopper and producing its own steam.
