  • another interesting read.

    back in 1960s when i worked for a RR in Chicago.the older guys would tell stories about how they worked on the trains that took sand from the dunes in Indiana.to fill out the lake front in downtown Chicago in the 1930s.

    when i was reading this linked report.i recalled one of the guys saying that his grandfather was a boss when they built a line along the coast of NJ.
    since none of us knew if it was true or not.so we just let it be.

    after reading the story i now know it was true.

    Which RR did you work for? I'm a railroad fan and modeler.

    The Cape May story is a good read. I've been to Cape May many times, but never knew about there being a RR along the coastline.
