    Pronounced LAY Seen, and sometimes called Lacy Gene by some whose tongue was placed firmly in their check.

    my copy of the Northern division B&B manual says that LaCygne, KS had a north and south Section House, does anyone know why?

    La Cygne was the headquarters for Section Gang 13 and Section Gang 14. Evidently, Boicourt was not deemed suitable to locate a gang, so Gang 14 was stationed there as well.

    Gang 12, quartered at Fontana, worked section 120, MP C48-C54
    Gang 13, quartered at La Cygne, worked section 121, MP C54-C60
    Gang 14, quartered at La Cygne, worked section 122, MP C60-C66
