Old Timer's Day at Tweetsie Railroad

Tweetsie Railroad held their "Old Timer's Day" celebration on Father's Day weekend for many years. That's one of the reasons this particular weekend was scheduled for the first ET&WNC Railroad Historical Society Convention. We continued having the Convention on this weekend, but Tweetsie eventually discontinued the Old Timer's Day because we ran out of old timers. I wish I knew this gentleman's name, he was an ex-ET&WNC worker and was at Tweetsie that day. He was treated to a cab ride, which is a real treat for anyone who loves railroads. If anyone knows his name, please let me know and I'll add it to this commentary.
