Old Southern Pacific Employee Records
I can in no way help you with anything to do with finding and/or accessing old Southern Pacific Employee records, or genealogical research to do with ex Southern Pacific Employees.
Bear in mind that Employee Records/Information were, and still are confidential.
One source may be U.S. Railroad Retirement Board
Requests for genealogical information should be sent directly to:
U.S. Railroad Retirement Board
The following sources have been provided to discussion forums in the past. These may or may not be of help to you, and are given with no guarantee of success...
Start with the employee records in the California State Railroad Museum Library. Be sure you ask for the (CSRM) LIBRARY.
There may be other sources, these will be listed when known.
As Union Pacific now owns what was Southern Pacific, try their website for information on what/where old records they may have inherited went.
