On N&W passenger trains, Train Crew size was governed by an agreement.
Not on passenger trains, but on N&W's Lake Erie Division -- crew size wasdetermined by the State of Indiana. Trains 68 cars or more required threebrakemen. Eastbound from Fort Wayne, the 3rd brakeman would ride 16 milesto the Indiana/Ohio state line , the eastbound would slow down and thebrakeman would drop off and wait for a westbound with 68 + cars. If no westboundsshowed up, N&W would send a taxi to Payne, Ohio to pick the brakeman up andbring him back to the yard office to go off duty. Harry Bundy
