Milw lite engine
Title:  Milw lite engine
Description:  at the east end of Hoffman Avenue the signals look different than they do today, that is before ctc and before the interlocking tower was torn down! Since I once worked there, I can say that this is probably the engine hostler coming back from Minneapolis. It is very doubtful that a train crew would have been running with the engine 153 long nose first. And since they are going east on the westward freight main as the track headed out of the yard, I would say that they are going to the roundhouse. Hoffman Avenue was a busy place and still is today. That is why I liked working there, in those days!
