Went from traveling around in the country
after going to work for the railroad here, I didn’t retire until ’63. 50 years – but
I always had two jobs. INTERVIEWER: What was happening with the railroad at the time? WALTER:
Oh the railroads were – they had all the railroads here going through….and passenger trains.
Had two passenger trains out of Great Falls each direction – morning and night. And you
could go down to the depot where the Great Falls Gas Company is right now, and you could
find five or six hundred people waiting to get on the trains, because there was no cars.
Everybody had to – had to ride the train.
