I would imagine that the Crested Butte train's conductor was Ed Mahoney while E.P. Mahoney was conductor on trains 315-316. E.P. Mahoney had a 10-year seniority advantage over Ed Mahoney.

Anthony Katschthaler called off another trip. Maybe the same crud that got conductor E.B. Cornell got him as well.

E.B. Curtis was the senior conductor on the Alamosa-area lines when he retired on disablity in 1957. His brakeman days date to 2-5-1909. He was promoted to conductor on 4-5-1917. Alva Lyons was No. 4 on the 1957 list.
