Much has been written about railroads, their histories, locomotives and rolling stock, etc. Although some writing has been penned about the railroad worker, his duties, ancedotes, etc., there are countless stories and lore which have been passed from railroader to railroader, their families and friends, that deserve to be told again to enlighten and humor the listener. Examples include some that I have heard over the years - a northbound passenger train on the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio hitting a house south of Springfield, IL - a C&NW conductor in suburban service that gave away S&H Green Stamps with cash fare receipts - another conductor that called me, when I was calling crews, to lay off because his sister had just gotten hit by an airplane. Please change names of those involved and locations to protect the guilty.
