1. Carpenter (paternal grandfather)
2. Armed guard on the NYC subway system's "money train" (father's father)


Remember the Wesley Snipes movie "Money Train"? That USED to be a real thing, though Grandpa just called it "the money CAR." It used to go to all the subway stations at night to collect all the day's receipts.

Note that nobody dared Rob the money train while MY grandpa worked on it!

4. Mining engineer (maternal grandfather)

One of his fingers was crooked from having been caught in the door of a mine elevator. For some years he worked in a gold mine and when the film "Coal Miner's Daughter" came out, family members joked that my mom was "the gold miner's daughter."

astorian, I never realized that the money train/car was a real thing!
