Big Four Rail Road
« on: January 21, 2006, 05:33:21 PM »
Can anyone tell me how to find records of those who worked on this line? I have a family full of rail-roaders who worked for the Big Four for decades. I have a few photos if anyone is interested.

                                                                                        Thanks,
                                                                                        Wanda

I can't tell you where to find records and I have been asked that many times.

However, I am interested in Big Four photos for my collection and my Railroads of Madison County website http://madisonrails.railfan.net/ if you want to share them, e-mail me at madisonrails@railfan.net

There was more than one Big Four Depot in Grant County. Here is the one at Fairmount.
