SLANG OF m TRAINMEN
Pic.turesque Lingo Tamed Loose on
TEXE. AND FANCY SPEECH
If a Hoajger Pings Her la Vala He
lias to lilt the Grit, Prod
the Tallow Pot and
The talk of trainmen is about, as rich
In picturesque slang as any In this land
of free and fancy speech. A collection
of these expressions Is being mude by
the Railroad Man's Magaxine and Is
leaching axtonlshing proportion. Home
of the lingo can be understood even by
the outsider. A "wide door Pullman," for
Instance, U a rather common way of re
ferring to a box car. But most of the
phrases aro Grerk to the uninitiated.
"Taking her by the neck," for example,
Is used when an engine la made to pull
a heavy "drag" up a steep hill or around
sharp curve. '
Once at the top of the grade the "hog
Ker" Just "lets her drift." "Plugging her"
Is an old term, used when the throttle is
closed by a quick motion of the left hand
while at the same time the reverse lever
is thrown back with the right hand. This
Is not calculated to do any good to en
sine frames and cylinders and Is resorted
to only lu gnat emergencies. It Isn't so
common since the Introduction of auto
'An old bos car or a small building oc
cupied as the yardmastsr's office Is
known as tbe "doghouse." It Is some
times used to Indicate the small four
wheeled caboose used by some roads at
UM Ull end of freight trains. This Is
also called the"hut," "crummle," "crura
box" or "cage."
"Hitting the grit" Is what no trainman
likes to do, but he sometimes has to when
a train Is running at full speed and hie
only chance of not being caught In a
wreck Is to Jump. . "Getting her down In
the corner" Is setting the reverse lever
down In the lowest forward notch the
quadrant so that fhe engine has the full
length of the stroke, v
Llago of the fab.
"Patting her on the back" Is an ex
pression used when the reverse lever Is
down In the corner and is gradually
hooked up' notch by . notch on the quad
rant as the saturated steam Is worked
off. "Making her pop" Is to maintain a
fire so that the Instant the engine stops
working she blows off.
To "keep her hot" Is to maintain a fire
at a steady heat, thus furnishing all the
dry Bteam needed, no matter how hard
the engine may be working or regardless
of the condition of the weather. As every
fireman knows, the weather often tests
the mettle of a "diamond pusher" on hard
runs with a heavy drag of "rattlers."
A. thin plume of dry steam escaping
from the pop la "carrying a white
feather." , This. unually occurs after an
engine has been working hard and the
condition of roadbed and gradient permits
of the engineer easing her off a little.
When an engine has to haul a particu
larly heavy load up a steep grade It Is
often necessary to "pound her." The en
gineer gets over the hill with her, but Is
apt to strain . the engine In so doing.
Working an engine to full capacity after
she' has been reported for light repairs
which have not been' given her or work
ing an engine to a higher limit than her
builders designed is also called "pounding
per." ,. '
A "dead engine". Is one without fire.
Bteam Is sometimes known as "fog." The
tonductoi ' of tbe'swltcbing crew la the
"drummer," and tho brakemen are
"shacks," "car catchers," "fielders" or
"ground bogs." The yardmaster Is fre
quently known as a "switch hog" and
sometimes as "tbe big switch hog." The
yardmaster's office Is the "knowledge
box" and the yard clerk Is the' "number
grabber." Switching cars Is "shaking
A new fireman or brakeman Is a "stu
dent." A "boomer" In the strictest
serine of the term. Is a man who stays
only about one pay day on a division.
A locomotive engineer Is known as a
"boghead," "honger," "ea;le eye,"
"throttle puller," "runner" or. "engine
A locomotive Is called a "mill,'" "ket
tle," "scrap heap." "Junk pile," and
frequently and familiarly referred to as
the "old girl." A fireman Is known
as a "tallow pot," a "diamond dealer,".
"diamond pusher," and In this day some
times as a "stoker."
Freight brakemen are called "shacks,"
"strong arms," "twisters," "brakles,"
"cuiiies" and "dopa artists." "Varnished
cars ' are passenger coaches. A "gon"
is a gondola or coal car. A "sK-elgon"
is sometimes called a "whaiebelly" or a
"battleship." A refrigerator car Is a
The "running board" or "toepath" Is
made up of two or three boards or
planks running lengthwlae of the "deck"
or roof of a box car. The floor of an en
gine eab or tender Is also called a "deck."
"Decking" or "deckoratlng" means
that the trainmen are riding on the roof.
The heavlet type of consolidation
erglne Is known as a "battleship," the
lighter t)pe of consolidation Is called a
"hog." Although the term "hog" la
generally applied to all engines now
adays, in the strictest sense of railroad
language it should b used only when
referring to lecomotlves of the con
A car that Is disabled or broken Is a
"cripple." , A track for repairing "crip
plea" Is a "cripple track." Car Inspec
tors are known as "car tlnka" and
"knockers. An overheated Journal bear
In or brass Is what constitutes at "hot
box," and the oiled waste used to re
pack it Is "dope." The pay car Is
commonly called the "pay waeon" or
"band wagon" and Is frequently more
familiarly known as the "family dis
turber." The Injector of an engine Is
the "gun." The blower Is the "fle
Out in the Rocky mountain country
there Is heard some of the most expree
slve sjang In the railroad world. For
Instance, "Hand me three!" "Saw 'em
off! Hctise' three!" "Amputute
'em!" would mean three cars were to
be cut off. "Tie 'enij down" or "anchor
'em" means to set the brakes. Out In
Colorado when they throw a switch they
"bend a rail." When tliy cool a hot
box they "freeze the hub."
Variation of .tbe frrlce.
To "pull the pin" Is to leave the
service. "Flying light" Is to "fla?"
or niiss a meal. "liras collars" means
the officials. "License" Is the badge
Worn by trainmen. A "smoke sgent"
Is a fireman. The "main stem" is the
main track. "Shuffle 'em up" Is switch
ing. Observation Pullmans are known
as the "rubberneck" cars. Passengt-rs
who ride on them are known as "cinder
To "make a Joint" Is to couple cars.
"Give 'em the wind" Is the term when
the air Is admitted to the train line. A
"bum screw" s a bad brake, and sand
Is known as "seashore." The above ex
pressions are used in other states be
sides Colorado. One of the most general
expressions used In the west is the ap
pellation given to cars not equipped with
airbrakes. They are known as "Jacks."
In Colorado a "boomer" Is called a
"t jurist." The boys out there go te the
"beunery" to "chew" and "kid" the
"hasher." If the "rear dog" la cooking
on the "buggy," then they go to the
"hearse" for the "big mulligan." This
dish is a stew composed of any and all
kinds of cooked meats and vegetables
cooked together. After that, to the
"feuthers" for a little "shut-eye."
There was once a smart "hasher," a
red necktie sport, who was slinging
hash in a railroad houxe where a cer.
tain fireman got his "eats" regularly.
It happened that the "haulier" had It In
for the flremun. On one occasion when
the fireman came In from his run and
sat down at the counter, the "hasher"
"What er golu' j have? Cup of cof
feo an' a piece of pie?"
"No," replied the flreboy. "(Jive me
a locom Hive covered with clnduia, a cou
pie of switchllght lit the fog and a
strliiK of flair."
This was tos much for tbe "hasher,"
so the "tallow" was obliged to explain
that a ''locomotive covered with cinders"
was a porterhouse st?ak smothered lu
onions; a "oouple of swltchllghts In the
fog" were two fried eggs with grease
poured over them, nnd the "string of
flats" was a plate of hot cakes.
Tho men of the suburbun electric rall
asys have a slang of their own. In their
service, "head-end men" or on, the
"head-end" refers to the motorman or
as he Is commonly known in the east,
the motor-driver. The conductor is on
the "resr-end." To become a "rope" or
"cord-puller" mea.'is to secure a con
ductor's position. f
"Had her In the coiner" means that
the motorman gave the car the full cur
rent. To "Jack her over" or "Jack her"
means to reverse. Whan a motor burns
ont on a four motor car and the head
end shouts to the rear-end that "she
has lost a lung," it Is easy to tell Just
what he means. Sometimes ha will say
"ahe baa only three lungs." On a two
motor car the head-end would aaya: "She
has only one lung."
When the brakes are not working per
feotly the head-end will say that he made
a stop by "using the short handle." This
Is used In reversing. "Hit her hard" Is
a term used when the car goes into a
curve a little too fast and It la well
known that some electric roads have
pretty sharp curves. "Met a single Iron"
does not refer to a smashup. It means
to meet on a single track without hav
ing a wreck. "Dancing on the pin" is
the same as "giving her sand," or sand
ing the rails.
CUTTING DOWN THE WORKDAY
Two and a Half Hoars Scheduled
as the Legal Limit Fifty
1 ears Hence.
Victor L. lterger, the one aocialist mem
ber of congress, predicts that fifty years
from now the law of the land will fix
two and a half hours as a legal work day.
The other day when the house of repre
sentatives had the eight-hour l-'ll under
consideration Representative Berger ex
pressed the view that it Is too lata now
to oppose an eight-hour law. He called
attention to the fart that in Australia
they are now trying' to pass a six-hour
law. "1 believe eight hours a day for
factory work is really too long," said the
socialist. "And I ssy this, although I do
not hate work, for 1 work fourteen, hours
Tbe eight-hour day, according to air.
Berger, Is now possible by reason of the
Introduction of labor Having machinery.
He pointed out to his .associates 4a the
house that one wan. at a machine can
produce, in aome instancea, a thousand
times aa much aa a man without a ma.
ohlne could produce fifty years ago, or,
for that matter, can produce now, with
out a machine. The socialist member told
his fellow congressmen that In spite of
the wonderful development of labor av
lng machinery tho average wage worker
la not any better off at the end of the
year than he was fifty years ago.
After Representative licrger had made
his plea for an eight hour day Represen
tative Mann of Chicago Interposed with
this question: "Why not make it a six
hour day?" This led the soclalint to say.
"Professor Theodore Hertxka. not a bo
clalist, but a student of social conditions
and- one of the great economists of Eu
rope, ttatcd that two and one-half hours
a day would be sufficient for our civiliza
tion if every man worked and if we used
all the machinery at our disposal now.
We could in two and one-half hours pro
duce everything lu plenty."
"is it not the Idea of the gentleman
it Is an idea that seems to be exploited
by a great many responsible sociologists
that If the aame progress is made in the
next three hundred years In the produc
tivity of labor as has been made in the
last 1M years that four and oue-half
hours will be ample working day?" asked
"1 think two and one-half hours will be
sufficient In fifty years' time," replied Mr.
Berger. "I agree with Prof. Hertxka.
He figured out In P3d that with macb
ery and means of production at eur dis
posal two and one-half hours would be
sufficient to give everybody more than b
needed and a chance for leisure and cul
ture besides." Indianapolis Nana
