“A must-read for buffs”

Five Star Review on Amazon By C. Patterson

If you’re a railroad buff (I’m a buff) this book will be like leaving a kid alone in a candy store. It provides so much information from the past to the present while including a little insider perspective. The story of the conductor is revealed to show that he is indeed the heart and soul of the railroad. A great read!
