Calling David Marshall--Oakland / St. Louis?
Author: RRBaron

Do any TOs know anything of David Marshall, the former Amtrak Western District Supervisor and former St. Louis Ramp Supervisor--of the 1980s/90s? If so, please message me, it's a very important health issue! Thanks in advance!

I worked for Dave Marshall years ago — a great guy... One of Amtrak’s best.
Sadly, I think he passed away some years ago.

Here's a shot of Dave, on the right, at Minot, working as train chief on the Empire Builder back in 1987.
What I observed as a passenger, was that he understood his job well, engaging with passengers, and tried to be easy going with employees.
Some train chiefs let the position go to their heads, and were a source of friction with on board crews.  Just my 2 cents worth.

Dave did pass away a good 10 years ago or so. I worked many STL-CHI RT's on private cars back in the day with him and his brother Jeff.
