Steven - 

This was probably an account by Dressler of a cab ride he had when he worked on the Scioto Division.  It wasn’t in TRAINS.  It was probably in the ARROW.

My own cab ride on 611 was in 1959.  I don’t think I ever wrote it up for a magazine.  Since it was night, there were no photographs.  Dressler’s ride was in daylight.

Subject: Assistance seeking Trains magazine article J cab ride

I am seeking assistance looking for a Trains magazine article from the 80s or 90s. I believe the article was by Ed King, but it could have been by Thomas Dressler. There was a photo taken from the cab of a J and the article detailed his ride in the cab as a child. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
