Larry Doub's Album: CB&Q stuff In my Family

As I get the pictures and pictures of the stuff, this is what is in my family from my Grandfathers days on the CB&Q Railroad, it's not much but means a lot to me.

Photo 1 of 1 in CB&Q stuff In my Family

CB&Q track gang out of Thomson IL
My Grandfather George Creighton (bottom left) and his track crew, date is not know but guessing in the early to mid 60s, he passed away in 1965.
I can probably come up with a couple other names here but not all of them we know who they are.
