This is likely not known to many of you, but I come from a railroading family.
My grandmother was one of seven children who all worked for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad beginning in around 1930 up until the last of them retired in the 1980s. They were telegraph operators, station operators, brakemen, engineers, and fireman.
My father continues this tradition today as a railroad engineer for the modern day successor to the old C&EI railroad in Illinois.
