Growing Up On The Railroad

I grew up on the railroad as my family made their living working for the railroad.  My grandfather, father and uncle worked for the railroad and my aunt married a manager for the Louisville and Nashville Railorad.  I have written down, in a series of little chapters or stories, my memories of those long ago days .  Hopefully, you will get a glimpse of what it was like to live on the railroad in the 1940’s – 1950’s.
