|No. 306 works Job 1 as it pulls the former Milwaukee Road
interchange at Hudson Street in Green Bay on July 30, 1993.
After the Soo Line took over the
Milwaukee Road in 1985, it
negotiated trackage rights over the GB&W from Black Creek to
Hudson Street in Green Bay, mothballing the former Milwaukee
Road route. Successor Wisconsin Central
used those same rights to run two trains in each direction. After
the merger in August 1993, WC ended up with two routes into Green Bay,
the old Fox River Valley Railroad
(former Chicago &
North Western main), and the GB&W from Black Creek.
