Last Train At Beverly

Blair says:

"This is the last "bonafide" train #200, seen sweeping around the big curve at Beverly, WA on March 1, 1980. Revenue operations have essentially ended on the mainline; this is the last train to carry the once-proud symbol out of Tacoma, but looking at what's on the drawbar on that eclectic consist of five GP40s and a rare GP30, you can tell the high-value traffic has already left the Milwaukee. Trains operated beyond this date for the final two weeks will either be designated Dead Freights or as extra divisional symbols using the 900-series numbers."
