This is the story of the life of a railyard engineer on the Norfolks and Western railroad in the mnid 1920s. It was a time in railroad history when railroad workers, labor unions and railroad management came to grips with each other over the railroad business and the men and women who toiled daily under unusually harsh conditions. It was a time when the family of railroad employees enjoyed the benefits of the railroad business, as well as the disappointments. This story focuses on the day to day life of a Railyard Engineer, his trials and tribulations during this period of steam history, and the many life factors he must deal with at work and at home.
