Southern Pacific provided housing for employees

From: "Bill Anderson" bill@fedshra.org

Can someone tell me when Southern Pacific began providing housing for employees? When did this benefit cease? I'm mostly concerned with the Placerville Branch of the old SP line. The section Foreman/Superintendent house in Folsom, CA served Natoma in Folsom to Shingle Springs in El Dorado County from about 1915 to the mid 1950's.

I'm interested too, if Southern Pacific provided housing to Mexican migrants in the late 1940s and early 1950s in the community of Athlone, California.
