 Pending identification I suspect this is related to the following :the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, as well as other related organizations. They merged in 1969 to become the United Transportation Union. The Auxiliary to the BRT was formed in 1889.
