The RMG that I knew was Bob Gregory, SP's Chief Dispatcher in Los Angeles. I just got word a few months ago from Larry Buamgardner Sr., that Bob passed away at the age of 99, late last year. I didn't know until Larry mentioned it, that they were best friends. Larry worked at the old Burbank Jct. Tower in the early 1960s, then became a Train Dispatcher around 1970. He went on to become an SP Manager.
