    If I can get this to load up, here is a picture of a trainorder I received from the dispatcher over 40 years ago. Boxcabe50 from TrainBoard fouind it in one of his files and posted it on TrainBoard for me. It sure brings back memories.

    That is my signature on the bottom

    That's neat Clerk. I don't have a lot of expereince reading train orders but it looks like the Extra West has priority but then is informed of all kinds of exceptions to that priority. Am i getting that right?

    Here is another, this one is 49 years old and is a Western Maryland 19 order from Glen Morris, MD, about 15 miles north of Baltimore.
