  • Women of the rails

    Been pretty dead her ladies, thought I post a few pictures of female railroad workers of days past. If any of you are ever in the Lancaster, PA area you should visit the PA Railroad Museum, which includes you ladies. Here is link to their website: RR Museum of PA :: Women and Railroads Pre WW II

    Be safe out there.

          There are actually three attractions in Strasburg (Lancaster PA.)

          first is the Strasburg Railroad ... featuring Steam train rides, working steam shop (with tours) and lots of stuff for the kiddies to do.
          Strasburg Rail Road - Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

          The Railroad Museum across the road.... Lots of rolling stock, with a large indoor display.

          And the red caboose motel, where you can sleep in a caboose.
          Welcome to the Red Caboose Motel & Restaurant, located in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish Country, near Strasburg, PA. Sleep in a real caboose!

            Here is what you will see on your cab ride, #8 dynamics on the head end and #8 dynamics on the MANNED helpers behind! If your heading West, #8 throttle on the head end and #8 throttle on the rear! Look me up, I'll take ya over there! Oh yeah!, there is still a MANNED tower in Altoona!

              I got a calendar from my brother in law a few years back. It was titled "Women of the Rails".

              It was not a nudie or the likes, just a good looking working railroad gal for every month. It brought a touch of class to my garage.


              Need to see something like that again.

                Hey,
                thought ya'll might enjoy this link. It has been a while since it has been updated but there are some really great pics of some great Amtrak folks. For all its problems one of the great advantages of working at Amtrak is the chance to meet and work with men and women of different backgrounds. If you check out the "rogues" gallery of railroaders featured on the site, it's a fun few minutes.

                  Speaking of women of the rails. It was Derby time here in Louisville recently so all the "Big Wigs" were in town. Aparently we have the longest working woman on the NS. She has 35 or so years in. They called here in and took some picture with all the big shots and gave here a few trinlets and what not. Just thought it was cool to have the "oldest woman" on the railroad.
