I don't have a reply...I have a question. My dad recently told me a story of working for Frisco in Texas....his job was to use a pole to hand off a 'bag/messages...?'...as engines barreled through the station- without stopping. He remembered pulling back as the train got so close...and the train had to stop, back up and get the bag. I'm probably not real accurate in my description- but I'd like to know what that was called...the job, the bag.... I know that after that, he left Frisco in Texas and returned to Missouri. I'm trying to piece together my dad's and grandfather's history with Frisco. thank-you.
