Re: Freight Conductors' Train Book available online
Thanks for posting this. Making this sort of information available is
wonderful, and very useful! The Amarillo Railroad Museum has done a similar
thing with timebooks from Mr. Bill Stephens who worked for the Santa Fe from
the 1950s through the 1980s. Bill loaned us his timebooks. I scanned
them and also put all the information into Excel speadsheets and pdf files on
our website. _www.amaraillorailmusuem.com_

the branches. Also a nice glimpse of the end of steam in Amarillo and
diesels from first to third generation.
I wish more of this sort of information was available. Of course
conductors' wheel reports, such as yours, are of more interest to this list, but
they are so scarce, I think timebooks help also.
I', waiting for someone to complete my "railroad data" life and offer an MP
timebook or wheel report from the Southern Illinois coal fields in the
