A collection of eighty true railroad short stories, photographs, and maps from the era of the Great Depression through the present day. These stories in the steam and diesel era were all written and told by professional railroaders and took place in North America. Here you will "hire-on" as a young kid right out of high school, work the Brakemen's Extra Board while attending college, serve as a railroad manager, fire steam during the Great Depression, work as a Locomotive Engineer on several major railroads, dispatch trains, and sometimes dread going to work because the new young managers are "trying to make a name for themselves!" Yes, all of these well documented tales illustrate what it was like to be a REAL RAILROADER in an industry that never got boring!
