Volney Black at the Controls of Engine 8444
Volney Black, Velna's father, was a long time railroad engineer on the Union Pacific Railroad, for many years on the giant coal-burning steam locomotives on freight trains, and after the diesels were introduced in 1957, he was an engineer on the UP passenger streamliners for the remainder of his career. Velna will write more about her dad's career as a locomotive engineer.
