Sand, Eddie. Eddie Sand was created by Harry Bedwell and appeared in twenty-four stories in Railroad Magazine from 1939 to 1959, beginning with “In Search of the Sun” (Railroad Magazine, Jan. 1939).

In the first two decades of the 20th century Eddie Sand is a stalwart, intelligent switchman, signalman, jack-of-all-trades, and “boomer” (wanderer) on the rails of the American west, fighting evil men and eviler acts of nature and mechanical mishaps which threaten the clean, pure operation of the moral, clean, and pure trains of the Pacific Electric.
