Photographs of Herbert "Bert" May, N.Y.C. passenger conductor, shaking hands with William B. Salter, Division Superintendent, on the steps of the Empire State Express at St. Thomas. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "A Youthful-Looking Veteran: Smiling and still youthful-looking Herbert G. (Bert) May, N.Y.C. passenger conductor, shakes hands with Division Superintendent William B. Salter when, as he stood on the steps of the Empire State Express Saturday at the St. Thomas depot, he was presented with a 50-year gold engraved pass from Gustav Metzman, president of the New York Central. Mr. May, who started his railway service as a brakeman on the M.C.R. here just fifty years ago, has been a passenger conductor eleven years. He now resides in Windsor, being in charge of fast through trains. But, even though he's mighty proud of his fifty-year service and of possession of the golden pass, "Bert" is not retiring - he feels too young for that. Mr. May, who is in charge of fast passenger flyers between Detroit and Buffalo, now resides in Windsor where he moved ten years ago, but he spent 40 years of his career in St. Thomas. His uniform bears nine gold stripes, each representing five years' service and if Mr. May, or Bert, as he is better known, has his way he'll add another stripe or two before retiring. His tenth stripe is to be added at once. His trains now include the Detroiter and the North Shore Limited. Mr. Satler presented Mr. May with the coveted pass good on all trains on any part of the vast system, the presentation being made on behalf of Mr. Metzman, and J. L. McKee, vice-president. The recipient said he will cherish the pass with all his heart and made use of it as extensively as possible whenever time permits."
