L&N Railroad Section Gang at Conway, Rockcastle County, Kentucky, ca. 1929 - 1930. Pictured (l-r): William F. Phillips, foreman; Mr. Houndshell; unknown; Henry Huff; Charley Huff; John Banks; Park Thomas; Bill Sparks; and Oscar Bell. The men are seen here with their motorcar, picks, and ballast forks. Foreman Phillips was the father of retired L&N/CSX Railroad signalman, Chester F. Phillips. Perhaps someone knows Mr. Houndshell's first name and who the unidentified worker is.
