    Jack Maxwell in Chaffee found a personal timebook from 1955 in an antique store in Cape Girardeau. In it were listed Seniority Lists going back to 1902. Attached are images that Jack took of those lists.

    One thing that is abundantly clear: In those days a railroad was run by PEOPLE! Not a lifeless corporation, but a living, breathing thing, it WAS people!!

    Fascinating find, Keith. I recognize a lot of surnames on that list, not to mention a conductor or two that I can remember waving to in the caboose, or individuals with whom I attended church. A pretty big blast of nostalgia and sentiment for this early on a Sunday.

    Best Regards,
