I'm sure you have seen the train crews numerous times at work on the railroad track at Langford and Main Street recently.  This photo was taken by Hudnalle McLean, Sr. and shows J.L. Hosenback and his crew ( plus a child ) around 1946 in Blythewood. 70 years ago and it is still hard work!

And, if you have any old photographs you would like to share, contact the Historical Society at 333-8133.
