    Sha-ti-coke, can't say it like I used to, lost my NH accent. Old timers probably pronounced it Shat-thi-cock. Man have not heard that town name in like 20 years:eek:mg:

    Pronouncing place names can be quite an art. We have stuff in my region, that folks outside cannot articulate.

    For example, I'm a bit of a Maine Two Foot buff. In Maine was once the Bridgton & Saco River. Saco pronounced there as SAW-koh. But we also have a location, (ex-GN RY), in Montana spelled Saco. Which here comes out as SAY-koh.

    :eek:

    A few here and there. There are roughly about 12,500 more, all from different railroads and locations, which I've not posted in my RI albums. I don't think there's enough room...... Some day I hope to have them all scanned. Some day.....

    Uh, sorry to correct, but "Ska-ti-coke" is in New York State, halfway between Mechanicville and Johnsonville, just north of Troy.

    Eh-Yup, got a point theyuh.:teeth:

    For instance, the are many towns named "Berlin" throughout the Northeast. It's BUR'-luhn in New Hampshire, but ber-LIN' in New York. Then there's "Woostuh" Massachussetts, written Worcester.

    LOL, my wife came to visit once and was helping me by map to get to a train show in MA. "Take a left here and we will go through Wourchester, ." She said it like Wor-sch-see-shire-ter. "what?" "That town she" said with a puzzled look. Oh you mean Woo-stah!:teeth:

    The pronounciation that I most enjoy is "Coos", as in COOZ Bay, OR, but COE'-os County, NH.

    The Indians are still chuckling over all their place names that the white man can not pronounce to this day.:embarassed:

    Ken, or anyone, what does "C&E" stand for in the "To" field? Most orders appear to have it, although a few do not.

    Hank-

    As already noted, indeed "Conductor & Engineer."

    Some interurbans, and even larger electrifications did use C&M. "Conductor & Motorman."

    Not always on each order. Depends upon the purpose of the order. Such as those you see with Opr or Operator, Yardmaster, etc.
