48%, Yes, one or more of my ancestors worked for a railroad.

7%, Yes, one or more of my ancestors worked for an urban area’s transit system (subway, trolley, streetcar, cable car, etc.)

7%, Yes, one or more of my ancestors helped to build a railroad or urban transit system.

15%, I don’t know if I have any ancestors who worked for a railroad or transit system.

22%, No, I have no ancestors who worked for a railroad or transit system.
