Book: The Military Railroad Journey of Chicago & Northwestern Locomotive Engineer Frank Pelletier 1942 To 1945 And Beyond by Donald M. Pelletier, Jr.

Great new book ! The Military Railroad Journey of Chicago & Northwestern Locomotive Engineer Frank Pelletier 1942 To 1945 And Beyond 

There aren’t many, if any, personal histories of combined railroad military training and railroad operations in wartime told by the person who lived the experiences between 1942 and 1945 on the Chicago & Northwestern, the Santa Fe and the White Pass & Yukon Railroads. 

This book does just that and more via the thoughtful and witty pen and photos Frank Pelletier left us. It is a collation and presentation of his historic original diaries, letters, photos and even an original poem by a multitalented railroad engineer, held, preserved and now presented by his nephew.

U.S. Army Coast Artillery Corps Battery B, 42nd Artillery and 602nd railway WWI

This is a group of 29 photographs which are still glued to scrapbook pages. I think these are photographs taken by a member of U.S. Army Coast Artillery Corps Battery B, 42nd Artillery which were engaged in Army maneuver in the fall of 1920. There are pictures from Navy Base Norfolk, Camp Eustis, VA. There photographs of the CAC 10-inch Gun, Fort Motors, 12-inch Motor M1918 Railway Carriage, 8-inch M1918 Railway Gun. Also there is a neat picture of the Railway Artillery Reserve insignia painted on the side of a military train, marked on one side B and other 42.
