Theirs was; the first American train over this track, and they were the first Americans who had stopped there. That was enouph for the enthusiastic Frenchman. The whole villain poured out to help unload the precious gasoline on the siding and then spread a feast that Sgt. Williams fondly remembers. "There was chicken," lie says, "nicely browned, wilh meat, fresh eiiKS, tomatoes and vegetables. And boy. they must have had a dozen bodies of champagne and cognac on without accident is still a mystery. The crew had to operate without benefit of lights because there were German snipers along the way. Occasionally when they struck matches to read their water guages, bullets whittled dangerously close.

Interesting Social Newt Everyday ear was lost and (here civ no si'ii-ous accidents. Vital supplies were delivered on time. The men are particularly proud of the fact that, during their first fortnight of operation, they took out 45 trams ill one day. a mark which many American railroads would be hard-pressed to equal. They like to (ell the story aboul an American General who said it would be impossible for them to gel 20 trains up to a French town during the first week. They took 3(1 trains up in six days! 4'low-Kjiit Organization The companies of this battalion are closely-knit organizations whose crew systems parallel those of Air Corps units. The five-man crews engineer, conductor, fireman and two brakemen train together and stay together for all runs. Many of the men have had previous railroading experience. Sgt. Barnett, who at 33 is a 16-year vet-teran. was Chief Crew Dispatcher at the Philadelphia Terminal of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Sgt. Randall was a fireman on the Southern Railway, Sgt Lierle a fireman on the Toledo. Peoria and Western, and Sgt. Bateman a fireman for the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy. Sgt. Griffiths was a conductor for the Union Pacific for eight years.

One of the few remaining Frenchmen told him that he was only a few miles behind the battle front. Another crew, under Sergeant Harry R. Williams. 620 North Garland Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri, had a taste of both frontline warfare and French hospitality. They ran a train of aviation gasoline up to within a few miles of Paris and watched with awe the orange and purple fla-hes of heavy artillery in the skii j over the city. The operating battalion's first two weeks of operation was a gruelling period. The men worked day and night without let-up. Sergeant Kenneth C. Griffiths, Route 1. Payette, Idaho, conductor, stayed on one run for 84 hours of continuous duty, sleeping occasionally in the caboose or the engine. Sergeant T. E. Randies, engineer. 115 Dayton Street, Knoxvllle, Tennessee, was eight days on the road, two days and nights without stopping. Sergeant Leroy V. Lierle, 235 Chicago Street. East l'eoria. Illinois, was seven days on the road.
