Memories

December 3, 2004

Roger

I grew up in Anderson, born in 1942, and remember the Big Four. I hired into the signal department in 1963 and a fellow had one of the colorful patches framed on his office wall.

I asked him was it was and he said, "That is the emblem of the railroad you work for."

I said, "The New York Central?"

And he said, "No! The Big Four and don't you forget it!"

I was Division Engineer of Track from 1969 to 1972, and Hadlow was the Track Supervisor working for me in Anderson. The double track bridge over White River in Muncie was knocked down during a derailment in 1971 or 1972.

I left the railroad to go with a supply company and I now work closely with the NS Railroad.
