Seaboard Airline Railroad Unknown Year

Postby bedford1864 » Mon November 4, 2013, 7:54 pm

This image was taken in Hamlet in an unknown year but perhaps a train expert will know the type engine, number and perhaps its dates. I am not sure of the vintage of the auto in the background but I am guessing this to be in early 1950's. My grandfather, Walter N. "Dick" Cosby is the second from the left. Can anyone identify the other men in the picture. My grandfather was a flagman much of his career. Thanks, Wayne Cosby

Looks kinda like my Grandaddy, Ross Fetner, on the left. I'm pretty sure he was a conductor.

I certainly do recall the name and also met the man. I am posting another pic in just a minute of the same person so you should know for sure. Thanks for the update!!! Regards, Wayne
