Were Black Children on Orphan Train?

"Orphan Train
Refers to the era of 1854-1929 when an estimated 150,000 homeless children were placed on trains and taken to rural sites concentrated in the Midwest and West in search of homes where the children could live and work. The children ranged in age from as young as about one year old to age 16 or 17."

Where do our Black children fit into the the orphan train historically? What bearing Orphan train Black children have on family research?
Is there known research/literature?
