Museum Board Member Laila McEwen takes inventory
of a collection of railroad items donated by Johnnie Walker of Terry, MS in
memory of Sarah Boone who originally was from East McComb. As a young girl,
Sarah lived next to roundhouse employee Ed Gatlin. Consequently, she became
fascinated by the railroad, collecting everything she could that dealt with
Ganeath Brewer works at labeling and sorting
Johnnie Walker's massive train collection.
Jerry Malone and Butch Williams hang a large
painting done by the late Charles Crossley and a children's art class. The
painting was given to the museum by Fern Crossley.
Bobby Bellipanni looks on while Jerry Malone
helps Butch Williams climb a ladder to hang an original Illinois Central sign
which stated "Smoking Is Not Allowed."
