Retired Engineer, Maurice Lewman, to Speak

Maurice (pronounced Morris) Lewman will be the speaker at the Society Meeting on July 25th at 7pm. He is a retired railroader who started his railroad career in Markleville in 1947 as a Section Gang worker until August of 1950.

In 1950 he started firing on steam engines and then moved into the Engineer duties. He transferred to diesels and stayed there as an engineer as he worked his way on the Michigan Division From Louisville to Benton Harbor until 1981.

From 1981 to 1992 Maurice worked the Big Four Bee Line Main. He has worked for the New York Central, Penn Central and then Conrail retiring before the railroad became CSX.

Maurice said, "I had the pleasure of working with C. C. Staley and Ron Buser many times." Buser contributed the Control Board from Gridley tower to us, and Maurice donated the 1/4 scale mock up of the Baker Valve Gear on a Steam Locomotive.

The Madison County Historical Society is at 11W 11th Street in Anderson Indiana. That is the double door entry.

If you are near to Indiana, come out and enjoy the talk by Maurice.
