Extra Jokers On The Railroad
Author: walstib

As if there weren't already enough jokers on the railroad, the Union Pacific used to have extra jokers.

"Be specific, say Union Pacific."

I picked up this deck of playing cards for $5 last week.

Yet another level of management. Always better if you can set them aside and not need to put them into play.

I'm guessing that UP hoped the extra joker would get put in someone's pocket.

Wow, that's a creative version of the UP's route map in that era.  Minneapolis?

Thanks, I shold have figured that one out.

Four of those powered up? That's enough force to tear up a train.
