Researching 70s railroaders
 
I am trying to find pictures showing the locomotive engineer on a freight job in the 70s. Preferably during the summer months.

I am working on a photo idea. I had originally planned to have the cliche long haired 70s character (that my brother would have played to a T) sporting a scraggly beard and wearing the popular 70s band shirt. Through research I have found that such a character would have been unlikely and probably despised.

I can only find images showing cold month operations. Can't see myself convincing the hired help to wear a sweater and jean coat in the current weather conditions!

If you have photographs that may help in my research I would greatly appreciate the help. Or if you know of an archive that would have what I'm looking for that would also be helpful. I struck out on an RP search. Their search tool, my computer, and my patience do not get along...

Tom Farence would probably be the one to ask about that. I'm sure he has some laying around.

Thank you, Derek! I will peruse his photos and see what I come up with.

Don't know exactly what you're looking for but here is one I found on RP:

I was able to find many great examples but I somehow managed to miss this one! Thanks for pointing this one out!

No problem. It's always nice to go through Tom's photos.
