Engineers May Become Firemen
A report is going the rounds of shop track talk which claims that as a result of less loading throughout the field and on account of the new Mallet engines, thirty engineers are to be put back to firing on the Pocahontas division. No one in authority can verify the story which seems to have the usual shop track talk backing. It is a known fact that since the twelve big Pacific type engines have been put in service and the ten Mallets have got to work many of the engineers have seen that sooner or later they would have to go back to firing.
