UP Freight Conductors' Train Books


Wendye Ware
 

Hi Folks

While rummaging through the attic of the Laramie Depot, I came across a box of Union Pacific Freight Conductors' Train Books. There are 128 of them, mostly from June, 1937, to August, 1938. I believe that the majority are for the run between Laramie and Rawlins on the UP mainline. All are brittle, but all except one appear to be readable. I'm in the process of transcribing the data from one of them (from 5/13/1938 to 6/21/1938, conductor Ferguson) to an Excel file and hope to have a preliminary analysis complete within a few days. Perhaps the information from these books will shed some light on the issue of freight car distribution. Here is a list of the from/to dates for these books, and the conductor.
