Additional Information

Written from the perspective of one on the inside, the reader is given short true glimpses of what it is like to be a "working railroader." Here you will have a view not only from the seat of a locomotive or the rear platform of a caboose; but you will see the railroad looking up from the inspection pits of the roundhouse and the locomotive shop, from an operator's desk in an interlocking tower, looking over the shoulder of a night train dispatcher, a trackman sweeping switches, and we'll harass crews from a managerial point of view, just for the fun of it..."because we can!" The author has always admired the style of O. Henry and loves to conclude with that surprise ending! This is not your typical railroad picture book; instead you will find enough material to hold your attention while you are flying from Los Angeles to Washington, D. C. and hopefully create a desire for more! Yes, this is just a collection of short stories...every one of them true...and some are even written in blood! Enjoy!
