I would like to know as much as possible about this. I have a photo post card of some men with shovels looks like they are in front of a train depot because of the railroal tracks and I was told 1 of the men is my grandfather Jessie Britton Taylor not that much known about his family and I would really like to know or find about as much of him as I possibly can.

That is the Chicago Rock Island Memphis and Pacific Railroad and Sec. 41 is an identified Section of the RR that is maintained by a Section Crew which, probably, is in the photo. I did not try to get the history of the Line but if that will help I'll chase it down. Also, did the view of the depot show a name? Each end would have had a sign with the town name. And in what area did your gp work/live? That could help.
