      Not sure. Just goes to show that women have been involved in railroading for quite a while, and not just in desk jobs. Yes, a majority of them were in the office, but women were out in the field too, helping keep the wheels turning.

        Probably was during WWII. A lot of women worked railroad, factory, and other male dominated jobs those four years while the guys were overseas fighting. I talked to some of the old heads that were here back then and they told me that most of those women could run rings around some of the men they worked with.

        Well, no surprise there. All the ones at my location can do that.

                I found this and decided it was worth sharing. This is a sort of blog by a woman on the Alaska Railroad about getting hired and training...
