Cool article, but the way its worded, she is 99 and still an employee, and it implies that there is an older person of another race  who is also employed by the B&O..

Should be worded, 99 year old woman is the oldest living former employee of B&O railroad (and likely Amtrak too)

So she was hired at 22 in the height of WW2 and retired at 58? (1979) I assume from Amtrak?

That's cool..  ~Ian
