Hey Donia,
Thanks for your tip about doing an Ancestry search to help with interpreting handwriting - it can be a bit long-winded but I've managed to find quite a number of the names on my current image set in other railroad records that are already searchable on Ancestry. I'm still going by the principle of "if in doubt, key what you see" but the searches can be a help when I cannot make out, say, the occupation and find it on a different record. For instance, I could not read what turned out to Blksm, a clue I got from a different record for the same guy that spelled out the occupation in full.
