Here I am, the great grandson of Benjamin Arrowsmith Hegeman Jr. who's father also worked for the Eastern Railroad.  Grandpa Ben my father didn't know well was with the American Car and Rail as well as managing the Lackawanna mid-state NY.

 My grandfather on my mother's side who I knew quite well Gale Lytle Hunter operated the Hunter Illuminated Sign Co. in Flushing NY and held many patents on the manufacturing of destination scrolls on subways and buses in New York City used up into the 1980's.

It is my hope to be of service here.

Heading to Gatow with a load of coal.
