SINGING RAILS by Herbert L. Pease


Email this review


The author's reminiscences of early days of railroading, first as a telegrapher in Illinois small towns, then as a ticket seller in Chicago, and later a travelling passenger agent ...Full of youthful excitement, he was only 17 when he started,- wrecks and near wrecks, cockeyed characters, he gives the flavor of the men and places he worked, the human interest behind the more selling of tickets, and the artful dodges that kept a passenger agent ahead of his competitors. Because of the technical language, this is of first appeal for railroad fans of all ages.
