Madison & Rock Island Railroad

My Great Grandfather Virgo Earl Madison, was a switch tender for the Rock Island Railroad. His wife Georgia Ellen (Keele) Madison was the baggage person. I don't know as of 2008 if this is the station he was at. He was in MO and in KS in his life. He may have worked at the Kansas City, KS one. He had a gift. He could watch all the reailroad cars going by and remembering each and every numbers, then he would go in the house and write every one of them down. He had a photographic memory.
