Bob Butterfield, New York Central pre-1947

Trains Magazine; May 1947; Kalmbach Publishing Co. Collection of LCGagnon.

A minor mystery is solved for the series 'Men of the Rails' and the collector plate 'Engineer' (1982).

In retirement, Mr Butterfield seems to have been involved with miniature live steam on the Rensselaer Central Railroad.

On the collector plate, a smaller locomotive was painted around his likeness.
The Christian Bell Porcelain Company of Mount Forest, Ontario
had its last board meeting in 1992 and was deemed dissolved in 2000.
