Default Oldest Great Northern Railway retiree

I saw this article, pretty amazing, the link is below

"Walter Breuning was born on Sept. 21, 1896, in Melrose, Minnesota, and moved to Montana in 1918, where he worked as a clerk for the Great Northern Railway for 50 years.
His wife, Agnes, a railroad telegraph operator from Butte, died in 1957."


I like what he says about one modern invention the computer.

"When the computer came out, that was one of the worst things," Breuning said. "They laid off all the clerks on the railroad."
