Riding the Diesel Cab


Author(s):
Abstract:
Mr. Goerch describes a round-trip ride in 1946 in the cab of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad's diesel engines. The ride on \"The Sun Queen\" left Raleigh bound for Richmond and for the author's return trip \"The Silver Meteor.\" Goerch discusses improvement in rail service because of diesel engines which increase speed with less noise. The author also supplements details of his ride with railroad vernacular, operational procedures, and railroad culture.
