Manpower Shortages on the Railroads
From the October 31, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1943, 75 Years Ago.
"After several months preliminary work and delays caused by the shortage of manpower and many other difficulties, the Chicago Great Western railway company today started repairs on the Sixth Street crossing.
"Work was held up until rightful owners could be determined as to the adjacent property, and whether the tracks belonged to the railway company or private concerns. This investigation required several months' time, and eventually included the transfer of property back to the Great Western."
