Social Security question - Railroad Board?

Posted: 1335146765000
Classification: Query
I'm very new to all of this and I'm not sure where to post this question but here it is:

I have one family member (great-grandfather) for whom I am struggling to find any information at all. Finally, on familysearch.org, I found record of his death through the Social Security Administration. It says that his SSN was issued by the "Railroad Board." Does anyone know what that means?

Thank you for any help you can provide!
