Remarks & Notes 
We're climbing Brookfield Hill on the westbound track between Elm Grove and Brookfield,WI.on the Milwaukee Road's Chicago-Tacoma mainline. As you look out the Engineer's windshield you see westward searchlight signal 96-9 which means we're 96.9 miles west of Chicago Union Station. We've got a clear signal as we climb the left hand super elevated curve on a 0.78% ascending grade and the next crossing at grade will be Pilgram Rd..We've probably got four GP40's or a mix of high hp.EMD's that will get the XL Special to the west coast in 55 HRs.......
