Former workers - Laddle Cottongim, d. 1943


I'm doing research on my father, he may have worked for the Central Engine Construction Company. Did that company morph into the Central Pacific Railroad?

My father was Laddle Cottongim deceased 1943 ... It is listed on his death certificate as R.R. Section Foreman, can you help or refer me elsewhere? ...

I am involved in creating a website, The Children's Train History Project, which we hope to develop into a home on the web for an upcoming generation of train lovers. The main content of the page is to be children's stories about American railroads and trains (both fiction and otherwise) but we will also have links, games, a calendar, E-cards, etc.

I have just discovered your wonderful Great Railroad Race game for kids ...

Please feel free to visit the website. It's still under construction .... And, comments are appreciated.
