after a 47 year railroad career I've decided to retire at months end. As a third generation railroader it's time to turn over the reigns to the young bucks !
While bittersweet I have truly been blessed, it all began 65 years ago, sitting on dads lap at a tower, "RB' , he worked outside of Buffalo ..........

No, 'RB' (River Bridge) was a tower located on the south side of Buffalo where the main line crossed over Bflo Creek.

As for Frontier Yard (originally a New York Central yard) that would have been 'railroad east' of there
