Looking forward on the train of success,
the tracks are long and narrow, the rails
are not always smooth, and there are
many dangerous curves to be encountered
and negotiated on the way. There are spur
lines and side-tracks to which we may
shift and upon which we must concen-
trate and determine our direction for
years ahead, just as many of us and our
friends have shifted during our school
years in both this generation and the gen-
erations of the past. Shifts here and there
are necessary to reach the desired destin-
ation. Satisfaction to be left on a siding
for too long surely will not spell success.
The time table of getting ahead is inside
ourselves and yet to be consummated. We
must have the steam to carry it through
in spite of the high mountains and the
long bridges. Our signals will not always
be clear to us, but the depot marked to
our particular liking will materialize with
perseverance. It doesn't matter whether
we get there on the locomotive or the
caboose so long as we reach the proper
and desired destination. Our important
ties of the past will help us in our future.
We must realize and recognize all the
dangers in our paths. We must remember
to keep our hand on the throttle and our
E eyes on the rails ahead.

Dear Mrs. King:
We're happy to have the opportunity to assist you in your
yearbook project. lkzclosed are several booklets and pictures which
will give you an idea of how a railroad operates.
You specifically asked about the titles of employes on a
train. Each train crew is basically a five-man one--engineer, fireman,
conductor and two brakemgn, sometimes called trainmen. One of the two
brakunen is the flagnan of the train. The train is in charge of the
In addition to this basic crew, there often is a baggage-
man and when the train contains a mail car, there are a number of mail
clerks who work :Ln it, sorting and dispatching mail as the train speeds
along. Mail clerks are federal employes.
On trains which have a diner, there is a steward in charge
of the car and a number of waiters and chefs.
When the train contains Pullmans there is a Pullman con-
ductor and a porter for each Pullman. In some trains there are coach
attendants to help coach passengers with their luggage and other
miscellaneous little chores,
On a long-distance train the train crews change frequently
at division points. Train crews are paid on a mileage basis and a basic
day's work for an engineer or fireman is 100 miles or less or 5 hours or
less. For conductors and brakmen it is 150 miles or less or 75 hours or
less. On a long-distance train, say from New York to Chicago, the
employee working on it may number as high as ICD.
I hope this will enable you to get off to an early start.
II you need additional material, we will be very glad to assist you.
