I have a friend who is list/trivia freak. We email each other lists of people fitting different categories. We came up with a railroad related category and got stuck. The question: Name people who worked on a railroad who are famous for things not related to the railroad. I came up with two answers: 1. Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) sold sandwiches and newspapers on the New Haven Railroad in the 1940's He went on to become a leader In the Nation of Islam (Black Muslims) and was a big proponent of Pan Africanism. 2. Thomas Edison sold candy on a train. He went on to become an inventor... Are there others?
