Allan: Though I never worked for Bobbye, all the regulars were always ready to give a helping hand when business was brisk and Bobbye and the crew were tied up with other customers. We'd invite new heads over to the coffee pot for a cup and conversation until Miss Hall or one of the guys could take over. Hall's was more than just a hang out, it was a home away from home to most of the regulars. Dallas ain't the same no more from the gab I get from a couple of guys I'm still in contact with. Progress? Only on the C&O I'm afraid, where memories come by the box car load!
I rode C&O from Lee Hall, VA (Ft.Eustus) to Richmond on my way to serve in the US Army Transportation Corps in Germany in January 65.
The routing was: C&O, RF&P, PRR, USAF MATS , Deutsche Bundesbahn. More great memories!
