W. A. Skelton

This picture was taken in front of The General in Kennesaw on her run from Atlanta to Chattanooga in 1962.

These were the living siblings of W. A. Skelton, who worked for the W & A and the NC&StL. Left to right: E. M. Skelton - Retired NC&StL Conductor, Lela Skelton Arrington - Widow of NC&StL Engineer, Sid Arrington, Ed Skelton - Retired NC&StL Conductor, George Skelton - Retired NC&StL Conductor, (my Grandfather).

They had two more brothers: John Skelton - Deceased, retired NC&Stl Conductor, and Wiley Blake Skelton - NC&StL fireman, killed in a train wreck at Ringold, GA in 1908.

Yet another example of why it was called "Grandpa's Road."
