Default Looking for photos/information

I have come to a dead end in my research and could use a little guidance. I am looking for pictures featuring trainmen or mechanics between 1970s-1980s. All my google searches for archives tend to lead towards steam era. I was hoping to find some on RP but I can't seam to find the magic words for the search. I am looking for safety glasses, clothing, and such of the time for a couple of photo ideas. Additionally, does anyone know when the railroads (specifically Southern RWY) really began enforcing safety glasses. In the pictures I have found only mechanics and steam trainmen/women wore goggles but all other photos showing trainmen did not show safety equipment.

Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. If you have pictures too, awesome!
