CPRR crews

From: "chris graves"

Remember the "A. Crocker" that was employed by the CPRR on the NewCastle Trestle? Well, on August 13, 1878, "D B Crocker", living in Rocklin (6 miles from NewCastle) shipped 100 lbs of peaches to Carson City, Nev. on the V & T RR.

If we could link A with DB, we could make a case for the CPRR hiring folks locally as it moved East.
