Thanksgiving Thoughts

Back when I was working as a brakeman/conductor for Burlington Northern Railroad, it was this time a year that I got the busiest. When you were on the extra board, you were called the most during holidays and bad weather. I think I worked every Christmas and New Year’s, and probably Thanksgiving also, when I was a brakeman.

It was all part of the job.
