**Bigt**I'm probably in the wrong forum for this question, so, please forgive me. My question

is this: On New York Central passenger trains, how many conductors would be assigned to

a train? I am assuming one, along with a couple of Trainmen. I ask because my young nephew

just heard the song "City of New Orleans" and it mentions "three conductors". He asked me about it.

He and I are now wondering how the NYC did it. Are we counting the railroad assigned conductor, plus,

Pullman conductors, or, did the railroad assign a conductor for every so many cars? How did they do it

on the NYC? Thanks in advance.
