Sam Johnson; The Experience and Observations of a Railroad Telegraph Operator
This book has been written for a two-fold purpose. First, to give the public an insight into the social life of railroaders; a near view of the daily and nightly workings of the busy bees that manipulate the two greatest modern agents of civilization-electricity and steam. It is hoped that the panorama here presented will lead to a better understanding of the duties and responsibilities of railroaders, and to a corresponding appreciation of their arduous labors while promoting the safety and comfort of the traveling public.
