Underwood typewriter and bracket lamps on the train
As I struggled mightily to learn to type, I never dreamed that CN train engineers were using the same model of typewriter as we had in our classroom.
Thanks in no small part to the user-friendly
machines, I finally acquired this skill. Hard won, it has served me nearly all the days of my life.
My mastery of the keyboard has come a long way since Grade 8, when my clumsy immature fingers first wrestled with a typewriter.
This work station with its Underwood typewriter, lit by oil lamps in wall brackets, is on display in a train car at the
Alberta Railway Museum
