Pulling into town
Title:  Pulling into town
Description:  A local on the ex MILW line from Albert Lea to Austin arrives at Austin behind a set of patch painted MILW units. SOO had taken over the Milauke Road two years earlier, and had done a good job thus far on painting out the MILW markings, not so good on full repaints.
