Railroad Women

December 2023

I especially enjoyed the feature “The Lady Brakemen” in your July/August issue. Not only are the accompanying photos outstanding and beautifully reproduced, but the story reminds me of how far the railroad industry has come in fifty years; today a great many women are making major contributions and hold important responsibilities in virtually all areas of the business. I would add, also, that we are better for it.

We hope you enjoy our work.
