PAGE 302 - SEPTEMBER 6, 2007
Conductor "Big Dick" Greene
pulls the pin!
Our best friend Dick "Big Dick" Greene,
Yard Conductor extraordinaire and salt of the earth kinda guy retired from
Southampton Street Yard during the first week of September, 2007. Dick
worked for the railroad many years ago and returned later on in life to
experience the magic and sometimes out of control mayhem.
"Big Dick" in uniform.... One place he did not like to be.
One good reason why railroading is such a good life.
We bitch and moan and groan al the time but railroad life can also be the best of times.
Good friends rally around the good guy on his retirement day.
