Dispatcher Train Sheets - Charleston District 1930s-1940's

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I am looking for copies of ACL dispatcher train sheets from the 1930's-1940's for the ACL's Charleston District-specifically between Charleston and Savannah. Besides getting an idea of traffic patterns for that time period, I desperately need the 2-letter telegraph call signs for the various stations/offices. I will gladly pay for all copy and mailing costs as well as personal time. Thanks. Buddy

Ref. our conversation Saturday, I hadn't considered dispatcher train sheets. C&WC Port Royal Division train sheet for 07/14/57 lists, among others, two stations jointly served by C&WC and ACL's Charleston Division -- Robbins - office designation "RS" and Yemassee--office designation "X". Whether or not Charleston Division "lightnin' slingers" manned these offices, I can't say.
