The way the bell cord came into use is about as interesting a rail-; road tradition as there is. Nearly every one of the older lines in the country claims to have originated it. One of the likeliest claimants is the Baltimore and Ohio. In those early . days most of the conductors' tak- ings were cash fares, and tickets were a rarity.

A bright young B. and 0. con- ductor one day devised a plan to signal the engineer without sending the brakeman forward. He hung a stick on the engine cab and hitch- ed to one end of it a clothesline which he ran back over the tops of the c...
