Gandy Dancers

August 26, 1971, Appleton Post-Crescent

Interesting article on the unsung heroes of the railroad, keeping up the lines, more or less behind the scenes.  As a not-so-glamorous job, these fellows lived a nomadic life, not unlike carnival workers and circus folk.  Most likely, though, they had a better reputation in the towns they visited due to the railroad being an established, trustworthy institution.
