LDS = Latter Day Saints Record. The one mentioned in the previous post for Hugh & Catharine's marriage is from Batch Number: 7222230 Sheet: 85 Source Call No.: 0820483 Type: Film

Rutland, VT Directories 1891-1892, Wm. McCloskey, clerk for Berwick House Not sure if this one is your husband's Wm since occupation is different but could be.

I found the following at which may explain why he did not work for the railroad in Rutland in 1891 but did again in 1900...

The last main line railroad built in Vermont was the Rutland and Canadian, stretching from Burlington forty seven miles north through the Champlain Islands to Rouses Point, NY. It was the only way the struggling Rutland could secure a northern connection. The route swung westward in Alburgh ,VT to effect a connection with the O&LC and continued due north into Canada, via the Rutland and Noyan Railroad. Built in only one year, the Rutland and Canadian was a spectacularly scenic railroad. Constructed mostly in 1899, it officially became part of the Rutland in the following year.
