The origin of this t-shirt design comes from a vintage Chessie System hat and shirt issued to employees that worked out of both St. Albans and South Charleston (WV) terminals around 1980. At that time, St. Albans crews worked coal shifters from Danville and Elk Run to the yard at St. Albans and American Electric Power's John Amos Power Plant. Hence, the hopper image. South Charleston crews were kept busy working at the South Charleston Yard, which served many local industries. Yard jobs worked at chemical plants such as Union Carbide Corporation and FMC, hence the tank car. Now is your turn to "mark up" in the 1980s and relive an era when the Chessie System shifted thousands of coal hoppers and chemical tank cars. Remember--Chessie has nine lives, you have one, be safe!
