Author: MartyBernard

On April 13, 1963 Wail Dunlap talked his way into a caboose ride on a Milwaukee Road local freight from Preston to Isinours Junction and return (in southeast Minnesota).  Here are eight of the photos he took.

1. MILW Caboose 01821 at Preston, MN on April 13, 1963.  Preston is about 70 miles west of La Crosse, WI.

2. Switching at Preston, MN on April 13, 1963.

3. Northbound Preston to Isinours Junction just out of Preston.

Note the SP&S boxcar behind the caboose in photo 1... another fallen flag a long way from home!

Check out that red fastback Chevrolet 2-Door, 1948 I believe.
That is really super sharp.
